Gold Coast halfback Scott Prince has been cleared of any serious injury after being taken to a Brisbane private hospital following Friday night's NRL clash with Brisbane.
Prince sent a huge scare through the Titans camp when crunched in a two-man tackle late in his team's shattering 19-18 golden point loss.
He was in excruciating pain as he left the field three minutes from the end of the game which ended in an 18-18 draw after 80 minutes.
Prince was given pain killers and placed on a drip before being transported by ambulance to Brisbane's St Andrews Private hospital about 10 minutes from the ground. "He was put in an ambulance and taken off to hospital, it doesn't look good," Titans coach John Cartwright told reporters after the game. It was initially feared Prince had broken his collarbone and possibly suffered other complications.
But after undergoing scans to his neck and collarbone region Friday night he was cleared ofany break and released in the early hours of this morning.
Prince's teammate, Clint Amos, was not so lucky, being detained for observation after suffering a bad concussion.
It was a nightmare evening for the Titans who also lost back-rower Michael Hodgson (knee) for the season, continuing a drain on their forward ranks. Cartwright remained positive that a spate of serious injuries was not crippling the club's form after such a good start to their debut season.
"We'll have guys coming back shortly, you just keep turning them over, every club is going through the same thing."
