Roosters lose Charlotte Caslick for rest of NRLW

Sydney Roosters star recruit Charlotte Caslick has been ruled out of the remainder of the 2020 NRLW season with back fractures.

The Australia rugby sevens star has played both games for the Roosters so far this season, with the Tri-Colours having already booked a grand-final berth against Brisbane despite still having one more round-robin fixture to play.

In a short statement released on Wednesday the Roosters announced the 25-year-old had sustained two small fractures in her lumbar spine.

The Olympic gold medallist will miss Saturday’s game with the Broncos and the grand final the following week, and it is unclear how the injury will affect her rugby union commitments.

Caslick will remain with the Roosters squad in a support role until the end of the 2020 season, the club said.
