NRL ticks off use of loophole for Bateman

The Canberra Raiders have received a representative injury allowance due to the shoulder injury plaguing English international John Bateman’s 2020 campaign.
Nine News rugby league reporter Danny Weidler reports the NRL will allow the club to spend $120,000 this season on a replacement.
Should the club spend the $120,000 on a reinforcement it will not be counted in the salary cap, due to a new rule that was brought in to protect clubs against injuries suffered on international duty.
Bateman injured his shoulder playing in a Test match against Papua New Guinea last off-season.
Bateman who’s set to depart the club at the end of the season is yet to feature for the men in green this year due to the shoulder injury he suffered while playing for Great Britain last November.
The injury allowance will prove a massive boost for Raiders coach Ricky Stuart who’s already battling a number of selection headaches due to a mini injury crisis that’s decimated his forward pack.
Along with Bateman, prop Corey Horsburgh may miss the remainder of the season after suffering a foot injury last month.
Forward Sia Soliola will also be unavailable for the Raiders for several weeks after suffering a facial fracture in last Friday’s win over the Dragons.

Coach Adam Simpson made the announcement during training today at Metricon Stadium in front of the group, with the decision marked by plenty of enthusiasm.
It adds another accolade to the premiership defenders already distinguished career, which saw him come off the rookie list to make his debut in 2014 after being sent away from the club for returning to pre-season significantly overweight.
He was handed Dean Coxs famous number 20 in 2015 and has since gone on to become one of the games best defenders, playing 129 matches for the Eagles in eight years at the club.
From the North Albany Football Club in the Great Southern Football League, McGovern is the son of former Fremantle and Sydney player Andrew McGovern, who played 83 AFL games.

Pearson announced her pregnancy on social media in January, five months after retiring from professional athletics in August 2019.
“My husband Kieran and I are pleased to announce that we are expecting our first child,” she captioned a photo of the pair holding a sonogram and a pair of baby shoes.
“To start the next chapter of our lives with such joy and love is more than we could’ve ever hoped for.”
Pearson has been documenting her pregnancy on Instagram, with photos and thoughts about her experience of preparing to become a mother.
“People always talk about the joy and excitement they get when expecting a baby, I don’t think you can truly understand this feeling until it happens to you,” she wrote in February.
“It’s been 18 weeks and I am slowly feeling and seeing the changes my body is going through.
“So far it’s been a very smooth ride for me, my only complaint is having insomnia for the last week.”
In April, Pearson wrote: “Even though time feels like it’s going in slow motion, I’m not going to wish the time away, I’m going to live in the moment and enjoy the journey. See you soon little one.”
