Cowboys hooker Josh Chudleigh suffers serious knee injury


North Queensland Cowboys hooker Josh Chudleigh could miss the entire 2017 season after he ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament at pre-season training on Friday.

Chudleigh was in the mix to snare a spot on the bench against Canberra in round one, but scans confirmed the bad news.

“He ruptured his ACL at a training session on Friday morning, it was a non contact injury,” Cowboys football manager Peter Parr said.

“It’s going to be a long recovery.”

  1. Ouch. Gotta feel for the kid and I hope he recovers soon. Hampton as the utility next season then?

  2. That’s a real shame. Not only for the young kid but also for commentators and fans alike who were looking forward to saying the name Chudleigh again. Seriously, it just rolls off the tongue.
