Former Wigan Warriors star sent to hospital after worrying injury

Ryan Sutton started his career at Wigan Warriors debuting in 2014,

The prop would go on to play in two Grand Final wins for the Cherry and Whites with victories of Warrington Wolves in both 2016 and 2018.

However, the prop was unable to get his hands on the Challenge Cup in 2017 as he was on the losing end of a Wembley defeat against Hull FC.

After the 2018 Grand Final win over Warrington Wolves, he left Wigan to join Canberra Raiders in the NRL in 2019 alongside John Bateman as the two helped guide the Raiders to the 2019 Grand Final with former Bradford Bulls and Catalans Dragons star Elliot Whitehead and former Hull KR star Josh Hodgson also involved.

Sutton spent four years in the Australian capital before making the switch to Canterbury Bulldogs this year.

However, today against South Sydney Rabbitohs Sutton was worryingly stretchered off.

He was hit with a shoulder charge which jarred head and neck.

He was subsequently taken to hospital and is awaiting a scan after suffering “intense neck pain.”

Canterbury chief Phil Gould gave the following update on him:

“Spoke to Ryan Sutton. He is hospital. About to have scan. Suffered intense neck pain, so it was best to take no chances & get him to hospital. Bulldog staff did great job. Our Welfare manager Luke Goodwin is with him in hospital. More news as it comes to hand.”
