Wallabys trio injured at carnival
THREE key Wallabys players who represented CQ Capras were injured at the QRL Divisional rugby league carnival last weekend.
Coach Aaron Farrar (thigh) and fullback Ron Craig (knee) are in serious doubt for this Sunday's CQ Extended League A grade clash against Valleys.
Meanwhile second-rower Dan Gourley is looking a bit worse for wear with a bad gash near his eye, but he is expected to play.
Craig could be out for an extended period after hurting his knee in a 47th minute tackle against Wide Bay on Sunday. Craig will find out how serious the injury is when he visits the physiotherapist today.
It feels sore at the moment, but hopefully there is no structural damage and I won't miss too many games,' Craig said.
'I have been icing it up and will head to the physio to find out what the story is, fingers crossed it won't be bad news.'
Meanwhile, Farrar has some major injury concerns of his own, suffering a badly corked thigh in the Capras 18-8 loss to South West on Saturday night.
Farrar rated himself 'very doubtful' to line-up for the clash against the Diehards.
'I had to play through it (corked thigh) in Sunday's game and it doesn't feel the best today,' Farrar said.
'It is nothing too severe, but at this stage I would be very doubtful for this week at least.' Gregor Mactaggart
