The 18-year-old local junior will return to Sydney where he will undergo scans on what is said to be only a minor strain. 

Galvin’s place in the 28-man squad will be filled by Iverson Matai, a talented young halfback who joined Wests Tigers last year from Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.

Matai will join the squad in Christchurch on Friday.
