Tate spends night in hospital

Battered Queensland State of Origin centre Brent Tate spent last night in a Sydney hospital. Tate was taken to hospital late last night after he began passing blood. He was kept in overnight and underwent a series of tests before being released this morning.

He'll get the test results today but could be in doubt for Brisbane's NRL clash with the Bulldogs on Saturday, who also have several players, including props Willie Mason and Mark O'Meley, backing up from the Origin. Brisbane will also have to asses the fitness of skipper Darren Lockyer, and centre Justin Hodges.

Lockyer finished the game with sore ribs and had stitches in a cut eye while Hodges - Queensland's man-of-the-match - may have strained or torn a hamstring.
