Andre Savelio suffers devastating injury blow in Brisbane debut

Former Super League ace Andre Savelio has been ruled out for the season after picking up an ACL injury when making his Brisbane Broncos debut.

The 22-year-old injured his knee in the 14th minute of Brisbane’s 16-6 win over CQ Capras in a pre-season friendly on Saturday night.

Jeremy Hickmans, high performance manager at the Broncos, confirmed that Savelio will need a knee reconstruction.

Savelio made 76 appearances in Super League for St Helens, Castleford Tigers and Warrington Wolves respectively.

It’s a huge setback for the promising back-rower, who just last week said he was hoping to make an impact at Brisbane this year.

Brisbane face Gold Coast Titans in their second friendly this Saturday in Toowoomba.
