Triple M's Paul Gallen has said that Valentine Holmes is unlikely to travel to the UK for the World Club Challenge after picking up an injury.. Listen to Gal's full discussion about the Sharks' World Club Challenge prep below.
Speaking on Triple M's Auckland Nines call, Gal said that from what he'd heard, the hamstring is causing Holmes a bit of trouble and the club wasn't inclined to risk him.
"Even if it's the lowest grade (hamstring injury), we're not going to fly him to England," Gal said.
"For a bloke who relies heavily on his speed, they're going to make sure that he's ready if not for round one, for round two."
