    David Bhana injury update


    Fri 21st April, 10:25AM


    Newcastle Knights utility David Bhana suffered a serious knee injury playing in the Club’s reserve grade match last weekend.

    Bhana underwent the first operation of a two-stage knee reconstruction on Thursday.

    He is expected to leave hospital in the next few days, before returning for additional knee surgery in approximately six weeks.

    Unfortunately the injury means Bhana will be sidelined for the remainder of the season.

    Yeah his footy career is over.
    Hope he finds a new career he loves and excels at, by memory he was very much a huge leader in the area he grew up in over the ditch and a very nice caring young man!

    So did we find out what the injury actually was? Cause "serious knee injury" hasn't really narrowed it down.

    He's having two ops so it's more than just an ACL/meniscus. Could be ACL, medial and meniscus. With patella thrown in.

    Any further news on Kostjasyn and if he will ever play? Would really love to get him back and just focus him as a 5/8. Than either bring Randall onto the bench or keep the Buhrer / Levi thing going when Buhrer is back. We have depth in 2nd row. Although Kosty isn't a natural half he can play there and would add a lot of experience.

    none yet. But not liking his chances tbh. Even Brown said he may not play again which has me worried.
