From TripleM - "Meanwhile, promising young hooker Brandon Smith will miss up eight to 10 weeks with a fractured wrist.
The 21-year-old had surgery on Wednesday after making a big impression in his three NRL games this season, scoring two tries.
Smith fractured his scaphoid a few weeks ago but continued to play until the club sent him for an x-ray because of persistent pain."
So the lad played with an injury - and played really well - for a few weeks. He isn't the first to do that of course, but it does show that he is tough.
He is back for week 1 of finals if he misses 10 weeks ( we have 9 games to go, plus a bye). Hopefully it is only 8 weeks, and he can get a couple of games in QCup before the finals. I would love for him to be up our sleeves in our finals campaign.
