Star Raiders Season Could Be Over
A massive blow for the Raiders with in form Five-Eighth Blake Austin suffering a hand injury during a training session yesterday.
He'll undergo surgery today, and will be out for an indefinite period which could see the end to his season.
It's another challenge for the Raiders who are pushing for a spot in the top two and a home final, however Coach Ricky Stuart is confident they will overcome it.
“It was a very simple accident and very unfortunate for Blake,” Ricky Stuart said. “As I said last week we are not a one man team and Sam Williams will come into the team now and we know he’ll do a great job for us.”
“This will challenge us and everybody has to buy in and assist in picking up the slack.”
