Injury Update: Starling, Nicoll-Klokstad

Canberra Raiders hooker Tom Starling sustained an ankle injury in the team's loss to the Storm at GIO Stadium last night.

Starling played on with the low-grade ankle injury and will be assessed this week to see if he will be available for the Round 12 match against the Roosters. 

Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad met with a specialist this week to review his neck injury, where it was determined he will require surgery this week. 

This means Nicoll-Klokstad will miss the remainder of the 2021 season. The club wishes Charnze all the best for his upcoming surgery and recovery. 

Jordan Rapana (hamstring) and Joe Tapine (knee) will be assessed this week to see if they can play in round 12. 

Ryan Sutton made a successful return last night from an elbow injury, while Sia Soliola has also recovered from a knee injury. 

Jack Wighton and Josh Hodgson will be eligible for selection this week after serving their one-match suspensions.
