Ivan Cleary to miss Magic Round match

Penrith Panthers coach Ivan Cleary will miss tonight’s match against Melbourne Storm at Suncorp Stadium due to medical reasons.

Cleary has been dealing with an ongoing knee infection, and underwent a second surgery on his knee this week.

Following medical advice and with the long-term prognosis compromised, the head coach feels that by being in Brisbane wouldn’t add value to the team under the current circumstances.

Cleary will be in constant communication with the team throughout the match, and the football staff have ensured the team is well prepared for the Round 10 clash.
