Just a day after losing Kaysa Pritchard for the rest of the year, the Eels have been dealt another blow with co-captain Beau Scott to undergo season-ending surgery.
Scott was forced from the field in the second half of the Eels 24-10 win over the Dragons. Scans have since revealed a ruptured bicep and Scott will now undergo season-ending surgery.
Yesterday, the club revealed that hooker Pritchard would also miss the rest of the season after suffering a knee injury in the same game.
Read the full statement below:
The Club would like to provide the following injury update after Saturday’s win against the Dragons.
Following further assessment to an injury that occurred in the second half, it is confirmed Blue & Gold co-captain Beau Scott has a ruptured bicep.
Beau will require season-ending surgery and at this stage, it is expected that he will be available for pre-season training towards the end of the year.
We wish him all the best in his recovery.
