Raiders captain Campese out for season

Canberra Raiders Captain Terry Campese will miss the remainder of the 2012 season, after surgery yesterday revealed a reoccurrence of an ACL injury.

Scans earlier in the week indicated Campese had only sustained injury to his medial meniscus which is a short term injury, but surgery revealed the worst possible news for the Raiders Captain, a rupture to his ACL.

Campese missed the majority of the 2011 season with the same injury.

Raiders CEO Don Furner said the injury was devastating news for the Raiders playmaker and said the club would stand by him in what is a tough time in his NRL career.
