South Sydney has suffered a double blow with star centre James Roberts and edge forward Ethan Lowe likely to miss the rest of the 2020 season.
Roberts’ horrible season has continued after he suffered a pectoral injury that will sideline him for between 10 and 12 weeks, while Lowe will require neck surgery with an expected 12 to 14 weeks on the sideline.
It has been suggested Lowe’s injury was the result of a crusher tackle.
It has resulted in a bulging disc which is rubbing against his spinal cord and will require an operation this week.
With 10 rounds of the regular season to go, that would mean both only have a slim chance of making it back this season if Souths go deep into the play-offs.

James Roberts could miss the rest of the season with a pectoral injury
Souths take on Canberra this round with Campbell Graham expected to return from a cheek bone fracture to take Roberts’ spot in the centres.
It remains to be seen what coach Wayne Bennett will do to replace Lowe on the edge.
There is a chance Bennett may be forced to move Cameron Murray out of the middle and back on to the edge where he started the season, or perhaps promote Bailey Sironen into the starting team. Jack Johns is another edge forward who last week was named as 18th man.
The other problem for the Rabbitohs is that Liam Knight is out with an ankle injury and is still a couple of weeks away from returning.
Roberts’ setback is especially shattering given he was forced to take leave to enter a rehab facility for mental health issues earlier in the year.
The former NSW State of Origin flyer has since struggled to get back into anywhere near his best form.

That's a good point. This could be a great opportunity for Paulo. If that proves to be the case, I won't complain as I really liked what I saw from him against the Knights.
Paulo is already 300percent better than Allan bro.

Don’t forget we are also without a half and 5/8 as Reyno and Walker never show up for the game.
Ask Nifty and brow they will enlighten you!

So from what Reyno was saying in his media today, it sounds like Hame could be out for a couple of weeks due to the shoulder injury he picked up on Saturday. That's a blow for us, just can't catch a break with injuries at the moment.
