It was a shocking twist which National Rugby League physio Brian Seeney says may have done serious damage.

Speaking on social media, he said: “Brings concern for stretching/tearing of medial knee structures (MCL) and possibility of fracture due to contact.

“Damage to ACL can’t be ruled out considering amount of medial force. 🤞for him.”

Fox Sports journalist Lara Pitt later revealed she had spoken to Booth following the horrible injury – with x-rays showing he had also broken his leg.

She tweeted: “Just spoke to a devastated Aaron Booth – said he felt tibia dislocate and pop back in on field.

“X-ray tonight revealed small break, and with zero stability he expects MRI tomorrow to show rupture of ACL, MCL & PCL. Awful!”

After the game, Booth’s manager Justin Holbrook admitted it was a very nasty injury.

During an emotional post-match press conference, he said: “I feel for Boothy.

“He’s fought really hard to get his shot this year and it’s going to be really nasty for him unfortunately. It’s really bad for him.”

Speaking specifically about the knee, he then added: “He’s done everything you could do to it.

“He’s dislocated it and he’s done lots of other stuff.”

To further compound their misery, Gold Coast Titans went on to lose the match 32-14.

The result leaves the team bottom of the NRL with just eight points from 20 matches.
