Raiders’ Dugan crocked again

The 22-year-old has already missed a month of action after suffering a shoulder injury earlier in the competition.

Forwards Troy Thompson and Trevor Thurling are also facing stints on the sideline after picking up injuries in the 40-18 loss in Townsville.

Thompson will have an x-ray on a possible broken hand will Thurling has suffered a shoulder injury and will be out of action for up to eight weeks.

The Raiders worries continue with Glen Butriss, Sean Berrigan and Bronson Harrison all battling injuries.
