Hodges considers legal action over
knee injury

Queenslander Justin Hodges is considering legal action against Suncorp Stadium after suffering a serious knee injury in last night's State of Origin match against NSW, according to a report in the Daily Telegraph.

The report says Hodges has been contacted by two Sydney law firms pushing the Queensland centre to take legal action against those responsible for the sandy playing surface. Hodges has been ruled out for the year with cruciate ligament damage, while his Queensland teammate Paul Bowman also sustained a knee injury in the game won 25-12 by NSW.

Hodges' manager Jim Banaghan says he won't dismiss the possibility of legal action.
