Barbarians beat injured Turtles
UNION: An injury to Layton Chambers has forced the game between the Turtles Brothers and Bundaberg West Barbarians to be abandoned early on Friday night in the Spring Cup.
The fullback suffered an ankle injury with 22 minutes left in the game, which forced an ambulance to be called to The Waves Sports Ground.
The game was then called off with the time taken to assist Chambers too long for the game to resume.
To compound the injury, the Turtle Brothers were down 19-3 at the time with the Barbarians handed the win and full points.
"There's no break to the ankle,” Turtles captain Adam Griffiths said.
"But he will have scans on it later this week to make sure.
"I think he will be done for the rest of the union season.”
Chambers is the latest player to go down for the seven time defending champions after Mat Templeman injured his knee three weeks ago.
He has already been ruled out for the season.
"They are massive losses to the team,” Griffiths said.
"Anything can happen though and we're pretty confident we have the players to fill the void.”
The win for the Barbarians keeps them second on the ladder.
The next round of the Cup is on Friday.
