Jason Doyle doubt for Sheffield clash with suspected broken jaw
12:14pm Tuesday 4th September 2012 in Sport Latest
THE 'Cases' Somerset Rebels were hit with the news that their captain, Jason Doyle, suffered a suspected broken jaw whilst riding in Poland yesterday, which, if confirmed, would see him sidelined from action as the Rebels head into the Premier League Play-Offs.
Doyle is returning to the UK today when he will have an x-ray which will reveal the full extent of the injury, and the time span, if any, he might expect to be out of action as a consequence.
“Obviously, if confirmed, this is a big blow to our Championship ambitions,” said Rebels promoter Debbie Hancock, “all we can do at this stage of things though is to cross our fingers and hope that the x-rays show that there is no break and that Doyley will be back riding for us sooner rather than later.”
