Teasdale was involved on the opening night of the new Touch season, but while playing for JGA went down and clearly in much pain was helped off the pitch before heading to A and E at the Princess Elizabeth Hospital.

Raiders head coach Reynolds is trying to remain optimistic for a positive diagnosis, but is fearful at the same time.

‘We are not sure [of the extent of the injury] at the moment,’ he said yesterday.

‘He is hoping to have some scans to check the ACL and MCL. He is pretty upset. But we will have to wait and see,’ added a coach who was eyeing the locally-developed player to play at inside centre this season at National Two level.

Reynolds is unsure whether it was a full knee disclocation or knee cap and how much damage there is to the structure of the knee.

‘At the moment we are hoping for the best. He has put a huge amount in over the last there or four months and it will be a huge setback for him.

‘The way he was progressing, he was looking to make that starting spot at 12.’
