Canterbury half-back Trent Hodkinson has declared himself a certain starter for Saturday’s preliminary final against Penrith.
Hodkinson has been battling a knee injury after last week’s nail-biting win over Manly, but reportedly trained strongly on Friday morning.
“The knee is all right,” Hodkinson told Fairfax Media.
“It was a bit sore earlier in the week but it’s come on leaps and bounds since then.”
The 26-year-old had not trained on the injured knee all week after colliding with Manly centre Jamie Lyon.
Hodkinson left the field midway through the first half, only to return and kick a match-winning field goal in golden point extra time.
