Raiders NRL Injury List - Post-Trials
The Raiders have lost a trio of front-rower's leading into Round 1 with the news that former representative player Tom Learoyd-Lahrs and promising youngster Jeff Lynch will join David Shillington on the sidelines.
Shillington was the only injury to come out of the Raiders final match of the trials, with a rib injury ruling him out for the round one clash against the Cowboys. Depending on how he responds to treatment, Shillington will be reassessed ahead of the Raiders Round two match against Newcastle.
After playing in both of the Raiders trials against the Storm and the Knights, along with featuring in the Auckland Nines, Learoyd-Lahrs has unfortunately suffered a high ankle sprain at training last week. The injury will force the former Test forward to miss 3-5 weeks.
Emerging talent Jeff Lynch's season has unfortunately ended after rupturing his ACL in a trial for Mounties last weekend.
