Vitality Netball Superleague 2021: Australian import Donnell Wallam fractures radius

Donnell Wallam has fractured her radius bone, while Tuaine Keenan and vice-captain Fi Toner, will face scans to determine their respective injuries, Leeds Rhinos Netball have said.

All three players were forced to leave the court during the Vitality Netball Superleague’s second game of the season on Monday night.

The encounter, which saw Rhinos show their determination and only narrowly lose to Saracens Mavericks, proved to be a costly one for their high-performance director and head coach Dan Ryan.

In an injury update on Wednesday, Leeds Rhinos confirmed Wallam underwent surgery the day prior to her fractured radius, and a timeline for her recovery would be announced in due course.

It was also revealed that new signing Keenan, who arrived after Madi Browne deferred her contract to the 2021 season, and vice-captain Toner, both need scans to determine the extent of their respective lower limb injuries.

The team’s next Vitality Netball Superleague encounter, which you can watch on the Sky Sports YouTube channel, is on Saturday against Surrey Storm at 12pm.
