The Raiders have picked up some injuries in their trip to New Zealand, with Mitch Cronin, Jordan Rapana and Blake Austin all leaving the field during the day at Mt Smart Stadium.

Some good news for Mounties centre Mitch Cronin who has been cleared of any serious neck injury, as he left the field for hospital during the Mounties v Warriors match.

Scans showed no serious damage to his neck and he will be assessed this week.

Blake Austin left the field for a concussion test during the Raiders NRL match, but was cleared to return to the field after the off-field assessement. He should be fine to take his place in the team after the bye. 

Jordan Rapana will undergo scans on his ankle once he returns to Australia, as he left the field with a high ankle sprain. He didn't return to the field after he was injured. 

Kyle O'Donnell will miss 1-3 weeks of action after he suffered a shoulder injury against Wentworthville in last weekends NSW Cup match. He will aim for a return in round 18 but may not be available until the follwoing week.
