NSW’s Mitchell Pearce and Queensland duo Anthony Milford and Justin O’Neill and are all considered extremely unlikely to play due to concussions, while Blues hooker Nathan Peats is struggling to overcome a cork.Melbourne coach Craig Bellamy has also indicated Cameron Smith could be rested for Friday night’s clash with Newcastle.The injuries mean the Sydney Roosters and Brisbane will be robbed of their most-attacking halves in Pearce and Milford for Saturday night’s blockbuster at Allianz Stadium.Broncos coach Wayne Bennett will also monitor the workloads of his club’s veteran forwards at training on Friday before making a call on whether to make Josh McGuire, Matt Gillett and Sam Thaiday available for the game.The Roosters also had their players undergo a medical on Thursday afternoon, with prop Dylan Napa carrying a leg injury.It’s understood Pearce is keen to play, but will have to pass significant testing to be declared fit after being knocked out by a Will Chambers high shot in NSW’s 28-4 win.Meanwhile, North Queensland centre O’Neill is understood to be suffering the after effects of being hurt in a Jarryd Hayne tackle late in the game.He went off for a head injury assessment and is a near certainty to miss the Cowboys’ game against the Gold Coast.Peats is doing all he can to play in that fixture for the Titans after suffering a severe leg cork, but is also considered highly unlikely to play.Elsewhere, Canterbury are confident all three of their Origin players will be fit to take on Penrith on Sunday, while St George Illawarra and Wests Tigers have no concerns over their representative duos before Saturday’s clash.Manly will wait until Saturday before they know whether Nate Myles will recover from an elbow injury to face Canberra, while both Jake Trbojevic and the Raiders’ Josh Papalii are certain to play on Sunday.The Warriors have confirmed Jacob Lillyman has no concerns to take on Parramatta at ANZ Stadium on Friday night.last_img read more

Among the group that came in 2004 were Osbek Castillo, a pitcher with the Arizona Diamondbacks’ AA team in Alabama, and Francisely Bueno, a pitcher with the Atlanta Braves’ AA affiliate in Mississippi. Dominguez is vice president of Total Sports International, which has offices in Encino, and as of November represented about 50 players. He was indicted six months ago based on testimony from a witness identified as H.B., who told prosecutors how Dominguez solicited prospective Major League Baseball players and how four co-conspirators, all Cuban-born, brought the athletes to the United States in 2004. KEY WEST, Fla. – A San Fernando Valley-based sports agent has been convicted of smuggling five Cuban baseball players into the United States. Gus Dominguez, 48, was found guilty Thursday of nearly two dozen federal charges, including conspiracy, smuggling, transporting and harboring, court documents showed. His attorney, J. Stephen Salter, said he would appeal. Most of the charges carry a maximum of 10 years each in prison. Dominguez will remain out of jail on bond until his sentencing, set for July 9. Dominguez, who lives in a gated community in Chatsworth, helped organize two smuggling trips across the Florida Straits in 2004, federal prosecutors said. The first one failed; the second succeeded with the ballplayers reaching Big Pine Key. last_img read more
