Trent Hodkinson

Hodkinson happy to be 'Mr Fix It' for Sharks

Hodkinson has become somewhat of a "Mr Fix It" at the Sharks, as a well as a good luck charm.

Due to a niggling injury to regular half Moylan, Hodkinson has played the last two rounds against the Parramatta Eels and Melbourne Storm alongside regular No.7 Chad Townsend.

Moylan (knee/hamstring) and Josh Dugan (groin) did not do the field session at Southern Cross Group Stadium on Tuesday, but coach Shane Flanagan says both are "good chances" to play the Roosters.

Hodkinson takes unorthodox pre-season path

But the Knights playmaker insists he will return for the 2017 NRL season better than ever thanks to precautionary maintenance on his troublesome knee.

Hodkinson largely got through the 2016 unscathed without a recurrence of lingering knee issues, playing 23 games in his debut season for Newcastle.
