In terrible news for Bunnies fans, star recruit Craig Wing is expected to miss the next five months due to the shoulder injury he suffered against the Roosters.
Many people have said the tackle that resulted in the injury was planned, or a cheap shot, but quite frankly thats a load of crap.
Rugby League is the toughest game in the world, its a collision sport, and as such sometimes players are going to get injuries like this.
The Rabbitohs now need to think about a longer term option at halfback while Wing is out, and to be honest I can’t see anyone at the club that can really step in and fill that role for the next five months, and do a good job of it.
It just shows how a teams fortunes can turn in the space of one tackle.
Souths looked great in the Charity Shield and in their first round machup against the Roosters.
Wings combination with hooker Issac Luke was electric and deadly, and under the new ten interchange rule they were going to tear up opposition clubs in the later stages of games.
Now the Bunnies need to go into damage limitation. They are a definant playoff team, they can get it done in the finals, but they need to get there first and they’ll need to do it without Craig Wing.
