Somehow Jack Bird didn't fracture his ankle.

It's a high ankle sprain. He should consider himself very lucky.

When did swearing (at an official) become as serious as damn near decapitating someone.

Ravalawa has been referred directly to the NSW Cup judiciary for calling a sideline official a "****"

Chances of Flegler playing again this year aren't good. Pretty slim actually.

There's a real possibility his injury could be career-ending.

Wonder if they have explored stem cell therapy,worth a shot if it is real bad.

what exactly is his injury?

Nerve damage in his shoulder.

He's had two nerve-conduction tests already and the nerve isn't completely dead but it's not responding sufficiently.

If it doesn't heal, they will go for nerve transfer surgery to try and save his career.

Flegler is contracted to the Dolphins until at least the end of 2027, but the latest revelation will bring the potential of an early medical retirement into play if he is unable to return to the field next season.

Should that be the case, the Dolphins will be armed with an enormous amount of cash to raid the free agency market, with Flegler's deal believed to be worth around $750,000 per season over its term.


That's a bit heartless to start talking about spending his money already.

NRL is really clamping down on it due to the refs at lower levels copping too much abuse. Professional players need to be setting the example.
