NRL Casualty Ward: Turbo hamstrung; Saab injures shoulder..

Coach Anthony Seibold confirmed post-match that Saab had suffered a Grade 3 AC injury while scans on Friday would determine the full extent of Trbojevic’s injury.

Saab missed six weeks earlier in the season with a hamstring injury while Trbojevic has played every game in 2024 after a horror run with injuries in recent seasons.

The Sea Eagles went into the game without hooker Lachlan Croker (concussion protocol) and forward Nathan Brown (quad).

The Rabbitohs, meanwhile, have confirmed a triple injury blow with Dean HawkinsJye Gray and skipper Cameron Murray all facing long stints out.

Halfback Hawkins will miss the next 12 weeks after injuring his quadricep while taking a kick-off in Round 9.

“We’ve lost both those guys for a period of time obviously,” Seibold said.

“We’ll have to fly a couple of guys in from Sydney tomorrow or Saturday and we’ll get to it again next week.”

The Rabbitohs also confirmed on Monday that rookie fullback Gray suffered a syndesmosis injury and will miss the next 8-10 weeks following surgery.

Murray has been ruled out of the NSW team for the opening State of Origin match on June 5 at Accor Stadium with a hip flexor injury. He is facing 6-8 weeks out.

In better news for the club, star fullback Latrell Mitchell returns from suspension to face the Dragons.

Meanwhile, star halfback Jahrome Hughes has been ruled out for the Storm’s top-of-the-table clash with Cronulla and is expected to miss up to three weeks after playing through a calf injury on Saturday while winger Xavier Coates remains sidelined with a hamstring injury.

Melbourne will also be without Ryan Papenhuyzen, who has had surgery after suffering a minor fracture in his fibula, just above a plate inserted last year.
