There are fresh concerns for Cronulla captain Wade Graham who suffered his third head knock of the season.
There are fresh concerns for Cronulla captain Wade Graham who suffered his third head knock this season during the Sharks’ 40-14 loss to Melbourne.
Despite leading after 40 minutes, Cronulla was blown off the park tonight as Melbourne produced seven second-half tries to hand the Sharks their fourth straight loss.
All eyes will be on Graham, who left the field late in the second-half following a head clash with Melbourne’s Tui Kamikamica. The Cronulla skipper was taken off the field for an HIA.
The club after the match revealed Graham “pulled up fine” and passed his HIA.
“Wade passed his HIA tonight but remained off the field due to time running out in the game. He’s pulled up fine,” the club revealed on Twitter.
It was Graham’s first match since round five after the 30-year-old opted to take a two-week lay-off due to a head knock suffered against the Sydney Roosters.
In total, tonight’s incident makes it three head knocks for the season, with Graham also having failed to finish a match back in round three during a clash with the Eels.
In other injury news for Cronulla, prop Braden Hamlin-Uele failed to finish the match when he came off during the second half.
Early suggestions appear Hamlin-Uele has a suspected grade 2 syndesmosis on his right ankle.
