Hodges could make injury return

Justin Hodges could make a return to Brisbane colours in the NRL‘s opening round, after it emerged that his hamstring injury is less serious than first thought.

There had been fears that the injury could have ruled him out of the clash against North Queensland on Friday week.

But scans have revealed that Hodges, 28, has only suffered a grade one hamstring tear, giving him a good chance of being fit for the match.

“It’s only a grade one tear, so obviously they thought it was grade two but it’s only grade one so it puts me in good stead for round one hopefully,” Hodges told Bronco TV.

Queensland and Australia centre Hodges has not played an NRL match since 2009, after missing the whole of last season with an achillies injury.

Hodges will compete for a centre spot this season with youngsters Gerard Beale, Jack Reed and Dale Copley.
