NRL 2012 - National Rugby League Injured List | 25/09



UPDATED FOR THE GRAND FINAL

ALL LATE MAIL IS INCLUDED IN THE ROUND PREVIEW THURSDAY ON FRONT PAGE

2012 NATIONAL RUGBY LEAGUE INJURED LIST
By W D Nicolson 

Welcome to the second season of the most comprehensive and up to date NRL Injury and Suspension List available on the internet.

We have once again sourced together a pre-season Injured List and will update it throughout the 2012 NRL Premiership.

Full Season Guide $10.00
Our sources are Official NRL Club Sites (links available below for their official injury list), mainstream media (including the outstanding Late Mail in the Sydney Morning Herald) and our own weekly game observations.

Get The 2012 Rugby League Almanac Now!

The Injured/Suspended List for each team is split into two Categories: 
DOUBTS
Means a player could play this coming Round but don't be shocked if they don't  play due to niggling injury or recent short term injury.
OUT
Means a player is extremely unlikely to play this week or next week due to long term injury/suspension, but beware players sometimes do return out of nowhere. We have added ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival - back in First Grade) for 2012 but please it is a GUIDE, not an iron clad date of return.
NOTE: Players who are listed as 'DOUBTS' may have actually played the previous round but if they are still thought to be carrying an injury they will remain on the DOUBT list.
This Injury List will be updated regularly during each week of the season, making it an invaluable Fantasy and Tipping Tool in 2012.
But if you want game-specific Late Mail every week, then check out our Round Previews Every Wednesday and they are updated every Friday.

If we are missing any players on this list - please comment below, reply on Twitter or email this address.

NRL INJURED LIST ENTERING THE GRAND FINAL - 2012:
Remember this is a guide, while we don't publish hearsay and unfounded rumours, not every player listed will definitely miss a game (or play) just because he is listed here.
