McKinnon to sue NRL

Alex McKinnon is set to sue the NRL and Jordan McLean for the tackle that left him in a wheelchair.

McKinnon was paralysed from a spear tackle that occurred when he was playing for the Newcastle Knights against the Melbourne Storm in 2014.

McLean and two other Storm players were involved in the tackle.

According to reports, McLean is personally being sued as well as the NRL by McKinnon.

It is believed the NRL has never had a player begin legal proceedings against it over an injury caused in the game.
