SYDNEY, Sept 21 AAP - Brisbane captain Darren Lockyer has reportedly been ruled out of Friday's NRL preliminary final against Manly.

The Broncos are expected to hold a media conference later on Wednesday to announce that Lockyer has withdrawn because of his fractured cheekbone.

The Daily Telegraph reports that Lockyer made the decision after consultation with the Broncos medical staff and coach Anthony Griffin at the team camp in Sydney on Wednesday morning.

His position at five eighth is expected to be filled by utility Matt Gillett.
