2022 NRL injuries, suspension, squad rosters, emergency department

Raiders Veteran Josh Hodgson played his last game for the club after being booked for knee surgery this week which will rule him out for the remainder of the 2022 season.

Hodgson, who signed to play with Parramatta next year, was injured in the Round 1 win over Cronulla and club doctor Greg Macleod said that after further analysis and evaluation he had been decided that he needed an operation.

The England hooker said he was gutted from his time at the Green Machine to end up like this.

“It’s definitely not how I wanted to end up in Canberra. After a disappointing year last year, it was probably the best I’ve felt this year in terms of my body, and I felt really fit and really fresh after a good pre-season with no internationals and no rehabilitation. To do it in such a minor way and suffer such a big injury is really frustrating,” Hodgson said.

“I have truly found a home away from home here in Canberra and I love this place. It means as much to me as my hometown club and I will be forever grateful to call me Raider number #325.

“I’m disgusted to be going out like this, but I will do everything I can to support the boys before I leave at the end of the year.”

Dr Macleod said the initial injury was minor, “but his return to training has since revealed some knee instability which appears to have caused his current injury.

“After further analysis and diagnosis, the decision has been made that it is the club’s duty to exercise due diligence on Josh to undergo ACL reconstruction due to a partial tear in his ACL and associated injuries.”

The Wests Tigers’ woes worsened on Monday when five eighths jackson hastings was charged with a dangerous throw in their loss to Newcastle and faced a two-game ban. He pleaded guilty to the charge, but is trying to get the Level 2 offense reduced in court in a bid to avoid suspension and escape with a fine.

Hastings and Joe Ofahengaue were both charged with a tackle on fullback Tex Hoy in the 13th minute of the Knights’ big win.

Ofahengaue was convicted of a Level 1 offense and agreed to a $1,000 fine.

“It wasn’t intentional,” Hastings said. “Obviously he got into a bit of a sticky situation at the top, but I feel like he landed well.”

Sharks ahead Teig Wilton accepted a one-game suspension after being charged by the Match Review Committee for dangerous contact on Mitch Moses.

Wilton, who scored the match-winning try in the final minute of Saturday night’s 18-16 win over Parramatta at Shark Park, has been charged with Level 2 dangerous contact for tackling Moses in the air after the halfback -back threw the ball on the pitch in the 54th minute.

Usefulness of eels ray stone ($1,000 for dangerous contact), Dragons veteran george burgess ($1,000 for dangerous contact) and the Cowboys forward Thomas Gilbert ($1,500 for a crushing tackle) were the only other players charged in Round 2.

NRLW Titans Star Georgia Hale picked up a one-match ban for a crushing tackle in his side’s upset win over Brisbane.

Cowboys forward Mitchell DunnThe season ended after suffering a torn ACL in the win over the Raiders in a 30th-minute non-contact incident at Townsville.

Panthers Winger Brian To’o is looking at 6-8 weeks after tearing up his MCL in Friday’s win over the Dragons, while James Fisher Harris (shoulder) and Scott Sorensen (wrist) are likely to miss a game only after being cleared of a serious injury.

St George Illawarra veteran Andrew McCullough is hoping not to miss a moment after suffering a shoulder injury in the same game.

Threesome of roosters Connor Watson (shoulder), Sitili Topouniua (concussion) and Joey Manu (knee) are under a cloud ahead of the Round 3 showdown with South Sydney while the Sharks winger Ronaldo Mulitalo (concussion) will also be watched during the week after failing to complete the showdown with the Eels.

Kalyn Ponga was ruled out of Newcastle’s second-round fight with the Tigers with a knee injury, but club officials are confident he will be back next week.
