In Townsville on Saturday night the Rabbitohs lost back-rower Bayley Sironen with a lower leg injury.

More injury dramas for the Brisbane Broncos in Canberra on Saturday night with hooker Jake Turpin breaking his hand.

Melbourne Storm winger Suliasi Vunivalu is set to be sidelined for the next 4-6 weeks after scans confirmed he suffered a fractured jaw in the side's win over the Roosters.

Vunivalu will undergo surgery in the coming days after the Fijian winger met with a specialist on Friday but is expected to return before the finals series in October.

Storm playmaker Jarome Hughes has been cleared of a serious groin injury but is rated a 50-50 chance for next week's mouth-watering clash with Parramatta.

Star Roosters playmaker Luke Keary has been released from hospital after fears he had suffered an internal injury during the loss to Melbourne.

Keary has suffered a rib fracture and is expected to be sidelined for 2-3 weeks. 

He was one of three Roosters injuries on the night, with halfback Lachlan Lam suffering an ankle injury in the first half. Lam is set to undergo scans on a suspected syndesmosis injury.

Veteran forward Mitchell Aubusson also left the field in the first half with a wrist injury.

Aubusson forced off with injury

Meanwhile, Sharks coach John Morris on Friday said the Sharks were hopeful to only be without Chad Townsend for two more weeks, while Andrew Fifita is still recovering from finger surgery. There’s a 50/50 chance he’ll return in round 15

Michael Oldfield's tough run of injuries has continued, with the experienced Raiders centre breaking his thumb at training this week. He will have surgery on Friday and will miss 6-7 weeks. 

Broncos young gun Xavier Coates has been sidelined for a week or two after suffering a foot injury at training on Thursday.

Teammate Matt Lodge has been ruled out of action for the rest of the 2020 season with a leg injury. He could not complete Tuesday’s training session due to the increasing knee pain and further scans revealed a hairline fracture was discovered in his tibia and this will require the rest of the season to heal properly.
