Wing faces season on sideline
Sydney Roosters hooker Craig Wing could be out for the rest of the season after suffering a leg injury during the club's sloppy win over South Sydney at Aussie Stadium last night.
Wing will head back to a specialist tomorrow where he will undergo further scans to determine the full extent of the injury.
It's possible a pin would need to be inserted into his leg and if that is the case, he'll miss at least the next four months.
Wing limped from the field during last night's 26-16 victory and doctors initially feared he had suffered a minor ankle injury that would put him in doubt for round two of the Telstra Premiership.
But doctors now believe the injury may be worse than first thought and hence, have ordered further scans.
Despite winning last night's clash against the Rabbitohs, who are widely tipped to take out the wooden spoon this year, last year's grand finalists were disgraceful, according to coach Ricky Stuart.
"We went out there with a poor attitude," Stuart said. "It was the worst effort I've been involved in at the Roosters in past seasons.
"I couldn't believe that they didn't score because they had that much ball."
Stuart will be looking for an improved performance when the Roosters take on first round winners Manly at Brookvale Oval this weekend.
Roosters lock Luke Ricketson says the side need to improve all facets of their game based on their efforts against the Rabbitohs.
"It was a very unprofessional effort & we're all quite embarrassed about it," Ricketson said.
