Brisbane Broncos young prop Payne Haas could miss the rest of the reason after finding out he will require surgery on his injured shoulder after suffering a dislocation, according to Blindside.
Haas sustained the shoulder injury against Manly last Saturday night and since then, the club had chosen to keep the severity of the 18-year-old’s injury quiet before it was made public today.
Following the surgery, Haas will require four months away from playing action, which might well run the course of the remainder of the season.
The youngster has played just three senior games for his career and it is disappointing to see him suffer a setback so early on after he worked hard to earn Broncos coach Wayne Bennett’s trust to finally slot him in the front row.
His breakout debut was a positive early sign but it was met quickly by injured, where he suffered a minor ankle injury early in the game against Canterbury and then partially dislocated his shoulder in the Manly match.
