Greg Inglis is likely miss the rest of the season after injury his knee early in Friday nights game against the Wests Tigers.
Inglis was seen on the ground clutching his knee and screaming in agony after a contest against Tigers fullback James Tesdeco.
The Rabbitohs doctor and trainer was seen to on the field and was given the green light to play on. With Inglis clearly restricted by the injury, he was allowed to remain on the field for majority of the game, until he pulled himself off once the result of the game was out of question..
The South Sydney Rabbitohs medical staff said he could be sidelined for six months, best case scenario.
South Sydney Rabbitohs general manager Shane Richardson has this to say about the incident:
“The injury occurred in the first instance in the match, not as a consequence of Greg playing on further,” he said.
“Our medical staff further examined the injury at the half-time break and they felt the knee was stable, and they along with the head coach and Greg himself agreed that he would go on and play in the second half.
“I, along with the rest of our club, have the greatest of confidence in our medical and coaching staff to make the best possible decisions about our players’ wellbeing.
“We have the quality of squad to continue our quest throughout the season and Greg, as our captain and senior leader, will continue to play a significant role throughout the year.”
