casualty ward injuries Jackson Hastings Tigers Nick Meaney Storm Lindsay Collins HIA head knock Roosters Luke Brooks Wests Tigers Jaome Luai Penrith Panthers return dates

The Tigers will be without Jackson Hastings for the rest of the season after he suffered an ugly leg break against the Broncos.

Hastings had his leg caught under him in an ugly tackle that saw Broncos forward Patrick Carrigan placed on report for a hip drop tackle.

Scans confirmed a broken leg for Hastings who will undergo surgery that rules him out for an extended period.

Meanwhile, the Eels have copped a massive blow in their hunt for the top four with star halfback Mitchell Moses reportedly suffering a broken finger.

Brent Read told Triple M that Moses will be ruled out for at least a month after suffering in the injury in last night’s win over the Panthers. Moses appeared to injure his finger in the 31st minute, and had it strapped by a physio shortly afterwards, but managed to finish the match.

Moses will reportedly undergo surgery and could miss the remainder of the regular season.

Meanwhile, the Storm’s outside back injury crisis has worsened with replacement fullback Nick Meaney going off against the Warriors with a shoulder injury.

Meaney fell on the point of his shoulder from a great height after he was taken out in the air by Warriors winger Dallin Watene-Zelezniak.

“He fell awkwardly and I wouldn’t be surprised if he has quite a significant AC joint injury the way that shoulder came down right on the point,” Warren Smith said on Fox League.

“Melbourne in all sorts of problems here. They were chasing Reece Walsh to be a fullback.

“Tyran Wishart will come on and play fullback now after they already lost Ryan Papenhuyzen for the season.”

Coach Craig Bellamy was hopeful after the game that it wasn’t a serious injury and revealed there are some positive signs.

“He’s done something to his right shoulder but I don’t think we’re quite sure of what he’s done,” he said.

“It looked pretty dire when he came off, he obviously had the sling on. But it’s looking a bit better at the moment, they don’t think it’s quite as bad as what they thought it was at the start.”

In the same game, Warriors five-eighth Chanel Harris-Tavita succumbed to a leg injury in the first half and left the field.

“We’re thinking it’s an MCL… he’ll have scans to see the extent of the injury. But our medical officer said it’s an MCL injury,” interim coach Stacey Jones said after the game.

ROOSTERS STAR SUFFERS UGLY CONCUSSION

Rooster’s prop Lindsay Collins has suffered a nasty head knock, colliding with the head of Morgan Boyle.

Collins bounced out of the tackle, knocking himself unconscious before leaving the field with the assistance of the club doctor and trainer.

The 26-year-old was one of three players who left the field in the first four minutes of the Origin decider and was playing his first game since the blow, spending two weeks sidelined due to ongoing concussion symptoms.

“I fear for Lindsay here, he went straight down… he has copped both head and shoulder, that is incredibly heavy on Lindsay Collins,” Andrew Voss said.

“You could see the contact,” Greg Alexander said.

“That is worrying for a player that is only returning this round because of concussion.”

Fox League’s James Hooper confirmed Collins would not return to the field in Round 20.

“Category 1 concussion, his night is over,” Fox League’s James Hooper said.

PANTHERS’ INJURY UPDATE

The Panthers have copped a significant blow with star five-eighth Jarome Luai expected to be sidelined for up to six weeks.

The club confirmed the timeline on Thursday and revealed that Luai had suffered a high grade MCL injury.

Penrith also revealed that Mitch Kenny (knee) and Stephen Crichton (ear/concussion) could return next week.

TIGERS’ BIG BLOW

Luke Brooks will miss Round 20 and likely the rest of the season after suffering a calf injury at training.

The Wests Tigers confirmed on Thursday that Brooks will be out for five to six weeks with Jock Madden the man expected to replace him in the halves.

The Tigers also revealed Luke Garner is a good chance of returning from a neck injury in Round 21, Stefano Utoikamanu has commended a running program after undergoing wrist surgery and Tommy Talau will return to full team training over the next month.
