Lindsay Collins has fallen victim to another brutal head knock just weeks after being concussed during the Origin decider in Brisbane.

The Roosters prop, on his return from a concussion-forced absence, collided with Manly star Morgan Boyle as the Tricolors defended their own try line after making a strong start to the crunch clash at Brookvale Oval.

However, the Sea Eagles prop made contact with Collins’s head with his shoulder, with the 26-year-old crumpling to the turf in distressing scenes. 

‘That’s worrying, for a player that’s only returning this round because of concussion,’ Greg Alexander said.

Immediately after Collins was withdrawn, Manly got on the board through Andrew Davey, who was the recipient of a perfectly-timed pass from Sea Eagles superstar Daly Cherry-Evans.
