Hodges rules out suing over Suncorp

State of Origin casualty Justin Hodges will NOT seek legal action against Suncorp Stadium despite a season-ending injury on the uneven playing surface last Wednesday.

Two Sydney law firms had approached Hodges and his manager Jim Banaghan on taking action against the stadium. But Banaghan has ruled out any legal moves over what critics have claimed to be an ill-prepared surface at the redeveloped $280 million stadium.

He says there were no positives for rugby league or Hodges in seeking litigation. The young Sydney Roosters star will undergo a full knee reconstruction next Thursday after damaging his cruciate ligament during the game.
