Broncos skipper Reynolds stretchered off against Storm

·1-min read

Brisbane captain Adam Reynolds has been cleared of serious injury after he was stretchered from AAMI Park in a neck brace in the first half of their NRL clash with Melbourne.

The veteran halfback remained motionless on the ground over the deadball line after diving in an unsuccessful attempt to ground a loose ball for a try.

Reynold appeared to hit his head as he dived, with Storm hooker Harry Grant immediately signalling to medical staff for assistance.

He was able to wriggle his fingers as he was taken in a medi-cab from the field.

Television commentary said that doctors had cleared Reynolds of serious injury.

"He felt nerves in his neck twinge but he's been cleared of a serious neck injury," Fox Sports reported from the sideline.

Reynolds was, however, ruled out of the match.

The NRL bunker awarded a penalty try to the Broncos, ruling that Grant had pushed Herbie Farnsworth in the back when the Broncos centre was racing to the ball.
