South Sydney back Adam MacDougall has been ruled out for the season after he snapped his Achilles tendon at Melbourne's Olympic Park tonight.
The news couldn't have come at a worse time for Souths fans who are still reeling from their side's 50-4 loss to the Storm.
MacDougall, 29, fell awkwardly in a tackle in the 78th minute and his fears were confirmed immediately after the match.
The former Knights winger has a history of injuries and this latest disappointment will be hard to come back from.
"Adam's out for the season ? he's pretty upset," Souths coach Paul Langmack said.
"It just went in the last tackle, moved forward and fell over right at the end."
