PILOT Medical Update: McInnes injury blow

Sharks recruit Cameron McInnes will miss the opening rounds of the 2022 season after undergoing a minor surgical procedure on his knee.

The procedure will enable McInnes to be available in four weeks, meaning he will miss the trial match against the Bulldogs on Monday night and the first two games of the season.

The knee issue represents a frustrating start to McInnes’s career at the Sharks, however the former Dragon has trained strongly throughout the summer, with Club medical and training staff confident he will be back on deck for the early rounds.

In further Sharks injury news, Siosifa Takakai who left the field after suffering a head knock last Sunday, has so far passed the concussion protocols and is expected to be fit to take part in the Bulldogs trial.

The Sharks reported no other injuries in their first trial hit out against the Panthers, with that squad to be boosted by likes of Dale Finucane, Nicho Hynes, Wade Graham, 2021 Player of the Year Will Kennedy and a host of their established NRL stars, for the game on Monday night.

The Sharks team for the Bulldogs trial will be announced later today
