MULLUMBIMBY product Cody Nelson could be in line for a call-up to the Parramatta Eels in the National Rugby League.

The Eels have been hit with injuries to all three hookers with Kaysa Pritchard, Isaac De Gois and Cameron King on the sidelines.

Nelson has played 11 games in the NRL since 2014 and has played hooker in the past during his time at the Eels.

Pritchard suffered an ankle injury in the Eels disappointing 26-14 loss against the Gold Coast.

He spent the rest of the weekend in a moon boot while De Gois faces an uncertain playing future as he deals with ongoing concussion problems.

King has had plenty of bad luck with injuries over the years and has spent most of his time playing NSW Cup for Wentworthville with Nelson.

There was no back-up hooker on the bench with Eels forced to used front-rower Nathan Brown for the final 20 minutes against the Gold Coast.

Elsewhere, Ballina junior Tyrone Roberts has had success since switching to hooker at the Titans.

Roberts usually plays in the halves but has already played hooker and fullback this season as the Titans deal with injuries to key players.

"Tyrone was injured himself but he ended up scoring the match-winning try,” Gold Coast coach Neil Henry said in the post game press conference.

"He was playing hooker then floating back to fullback when we were defending so he's been very busy.”
