BROKEN BONE: Wodonga Raiders' Shane Munro suffered a fractured cheekbone in the final minutes against Wodonga.

Raiders' player to miss at least a month with fractured cheekbone

Unheralded Wodonga Raiders’ defender Shane Munro will miss at least a month with a fractured cheekbone.

Munro suffered the injury in the final two minutes of the 28-point win over Wodonga on Saturday.

“I was running off the ground and I tried to close and lay a tackle,” he said.

“There was nothing in it, I just got a stray elbow.”

Munro, who turns 26 on Tuesday, spent two years at North Albury before joining Raiders in 2015.

Meanwhile, there’s more positive news on the injury front with exciting Corowa-Rutherglen youngster Will Robinson.

Robinson was stretchered off and the club feared the worst.

“We believe it’s only ligaments at this stage, initially they thought it might have been a broken ankle,” Roos’ coach Terry Burgess said.

And Albury will also be hoping for good news after interleague defender Michael Duncan left the field in the first quarter against North Albury with a knee complaint.
