Tom Trbojevic explains embarrassing injury
Manly star Tom Trbojevic insists he injured his hamstring after slipping in the bathroom despite footage showing the 24-year-old taking on a fan in a sprint race in The Corso at Manly.
Trbojevic said that his bathroom mishap was embarrassing but that’s where the injury occurred and now he’s likely to be out for at least the first three weeks of the season.
“I slipped over in the bathroom,” he said.
“It’s pretty embarrassing. It’s a hard one to take and I do apologise to the Manly organisation and members.”
"Holy shit, Harry's faster than Turbo!"

Trbojevic knew about the video circulating on social media and had this to say about his unorthodox sprint training.
Just spoken to Tom Trbojevic about that video. “I was having a few drinks and I was being an idiot on the corso. I know how it is going to look but I swear, I didn’t hurt it then." There are few better or more honest blokes in the game. I am happy to take him at his word.
