Trbojevic reveals Blues brothers dream ahead of Manly return

Manly star Tom Trbojevic has opened up on his dream of playing in a NSW side captained by older brother Jake as he prepares to make his return from a hamstring injury.

Trbojevic is set to line up in the centres for the Sea Eagles’ clash with North Queensland on Saturday night, his first since suffering the injury in a Round 10 loss to the Dolphins.

The injury denied the outside back the opportunity to play in the first two matches of this year’s State of Origin series, in which Jake has captained the Blues for the first time.

Speaking as part of Ancestry’s Discover your Origin campaign, Trbojevic admits he’s unlikely to have the chance to feature in this month’s decider but declared his desire to be led out by his older brother in a sky-blue jersey.

“It was a proud moment watching Jake captain NSW,” Trbojevic told NRL.com. “Not many people get the opportunity to do that, he’s very honoured by it.

“It would be pretty special to play with him as captain. He’s captained me before at Manly, which has been really cool. I’m happy he gets the opportunity and recognition to captain NSW. Hopefully he can lead them to a Game Three victory and a series victory.”
