Matthew Wright is all but certain to be rushed into Manly's depleted backline for Saturday's NRL clash with North Queensland, just three days after leaving the Cowboys.

Wright will train with the Sea Eagles for the first time in Friday's captain's run and is set to fill the boots of Brett Stewart (hamstring) or Tom Trbojevic (ankle).

Coach Trent Barrett said Wright and winger Brayden Wiliame were his two options at fullback.
