Martin was in a moon boot after Wednesday’s Origin opener, but his injury is not expected to keep him out for long. Luke Garner will replace him in the starting team this weekend. He is likely to be joined in the stands by the hapless Edwards, who was placed on an extended bench just days after being ruled out of what would have been a Blues debut due to a quad injury.
