“Oh no, apparently it’s the end of the season,” Andrew Johns said in a commentary for Channel 9.

Melbourne Storm legend Billy Slater, who has had a long string of shoulder injuries during his career, also said he didn’t look good.
“He looks extremely distressed,” Slater said on the sidelines of CommBank Stadium as Trbojevic left the pitch.

“I landed in exactly the same position and unfortunately spent a lot of time on the sidelines. So it doesn’t look good for Tom. “

“It’s devastating from the point of view of Tom, Manly and just football in general,” Cronk said.

“The guy is an absolute star of the comp. What he did when they play the Sea Eagles, they went from an OK team to being one of the top four teams. This is shocking news.

“I’m in trouble now, Manly. In terms of fighting for a premiership, it will be very difficult. “

Michael Ennis called it “heartbreaking” when he spoke to the Fox League when the news first broke.
