State of Origin prop Matt Scott has reportedly suffered an ACL injury which will be the end of his season. Already short on big men after the off-season departures of James Tamou and Ben Hannant, the loss of Scott would be a major blow to the Cowboys.
To make matters worse, star Kiwi forward Jason Taumalolo will likely come under scrutiny from the match review committee after he was penalised for a shoulder charge on Broncos forward Alex Glenn.
Winterstein, who missed the Round 1 match, was another early casualty when he left the field early in the match with an arm injury. He’ll have scans to confirm but he has a suspected fractured arm.
It’s likely that it won’t just be one new addition to the backline though for the Cowboys, with Lachlan Coote also being injured during the match. A suspected torn calf to Coote will be another blow.
