Parramatta Eels fullback Bo Vette-Welsh suffers knee injury

NRL

It’s a devastating end to the season for one of the NRLW’s superstars, as Bo Vette-Welsh was taken from the field with a knee injury during Parramatta’s final regular season game of the year.

In their crunch game against the Broncos, Vette-Welsh went to ground at Suncorp Stadium as she ran towards a loose ball, and stayed down for treatment.

It was immediately clear that something was wrong, given the nature of non-contact injuries usually being more worrisome than those caused by collisions.
