Hodges advised he could sue

Queensland centre Justin Hodges has been given legal advice he could sue after injuring his knee at Suncorp Stadium during Wednesday's State of Origin match.

Hodges' manager Jim Banaghan told The Age newspaper he has been contacted by lawyers offering to act for the Sydney Roosters' star. However, Banaghan said he felt uncomfortable about litigation in sport.

Roosters chief executive Bernie Gurr said the club would not support court action but he called for an inquiry over whether the sandy ground was a factor in the knee injuries to Hodges and North Queensland captain Paul Bowman.

Hodges will visit leading knee surgeon Merv Cross today for confirmation that he needs a full reconstruction.
