The injury toll from the Raiders’ loss to the Wests Tigers yesterday is severe, with both Jason Smith and Matt Adamson breaking a hand. These injuries make it a fait accompli for the Raiders not making the finals.
For Adamson this means the end of his rugby league playing career, while for Smith it is a season ending injury. Details are available at ABC Online.
Adamson has accepted a position as strength and conditioning coach with France-based English Super League side Les Catalans. Ian Hindmarsh also joins the French Super League club next year as a forward.
