Cameron King’s season has been cruelly ended before it has started after suffering an ACL injury.
King, a star performer for Featherstone Rovers last season, secured a deal with Cronulla on the back of his excellent displays in the Championship.
But he has suffered a season-long injury after twisting awkwardly in a pre-season warm-up game.
Another worrisome knee injury; Cameron King off with right knee injury. Non-contact, direction change & knee collapsing in brings concern by video for ACL/meniscus injury. Best case MCL/bone bruise but once again not good signs, fingers crossed for better than expected news pic.twitter.com/XKKV4cfdPg

“It’s still sinking in that my season is over,” King tweeted.
“It’s been hard to accept what’s happened and I’d be lying if I said I’m ok. I’m taking things 1 day at a time and determined to not let this defeat me physically or mentally.
“Thank you all for the support.”
