Josh Hodgson Out For Season As Raiders' Premiership Hopes Take Blow

Josh Hodgson Out For Season As Raiders' Premiership Hopes Take Blow

The Raiders' Premiership hopes have taken a major blow with the club ruling out both Josh Hodgson and Bailey Simonsson for the rest of the 2020 season.

Canberra officials confirmed on Sunday night that Hodgson had suffered a suspected ACL injury against the Melbourne Storm which will require surgery.

Early on in the opening half of footy at GIO Stadium, Hodgson went in to make a tackle on Storm skipper Cameron Smith when his knee awkwardly buckled underneath him.

Taken from the field of play immediately after incident, club officials later confirmed the worst - that he'd actually ruptured his ACL.


"The Raiders have received scan results for both Josh Hodgson and Bailey Simonsson," the club said in a statement.

"Josh Hodgson will miss the remainder of the season after scans confirmed a ruptured ACL.

"He will have a surgical consultation this week to determine when he'll have surgery to repair the ligament."

It's understood Simonsson, who injured his shoulder later in the game, will also go under the knife.

It's a cruel blow for the Raiders, who are still in the top eight on the NRL ladder despite their 20-14 loss at the hands of Melbourne.

But while some critics are now writing the side off completely, Canberra head coach Ricky Stuart has other ideas.

"I don't give a s***," Stuart said after the game.


"We won't put our heads down. That I promise.

"I have never had an injury list like this but I just asked the boys to keep on turning up with same attitude and desire. I just want that effort that we had tonight."
