Arm injury a big blow for Raiders winger Edrick Lee

AFTER becoming a regular member of the Raiders' starting team this year, winger Edrick Lee suffered a cruel blow yesterday after scans showed he had a fractured right arm.

Lee, who has scored seven tries from 10 games in 2013, battled on bravely for the last 15 minutes after picking up the injury against Brisbane on Monday night.

Lee, who will join French rugby club Pau next year, will be sidelined for 12 weeks, giving rugby-bound Sandor Earl an opportunity to return to first grade.
