Raiders favourite rushed to hospital

Canberra Raiders prop Sia Soliola could find himself on the sidelines after suffering a suspected facial fracture.

The Raiders returned to GIO Stadium on Friday evening with a 22-16 win over the Dragons.

Today’s victory ends a two-game losing streak for the men in green.

However, Raiders coach Ricky Stuart now faces some difficult decisions at the selection table with a number of his forwards unavailable after Soliola went down in an awkward head clash collision with Dragons prop Blake Lawrie.

Soliola was taken to hospital immediately and it’s expected he will miss the new few rounds.

The Raiders were already without big man Corey Horsburgh who went down with a foot injury last weekend and second-rower John Bateman who’s yet to feature this season due to a shoulder injury.

The Raiders will face the Storm next Saturday in round 9 of the NRL.
