Billy Slater shaken by Kalyn Ponga State of Origin doubts
Kalyn Ponga’s Maroon jumper is in jeopardy following a shoulder tear scare.
Sydney Morning Herald rugby league reporter Michael Chammas reports shoulder scans have revealed Ponga will require surgery in the off-season.
As a Queensland selector, Billy Slater was shocked by the news.

“AJ Brimson’s been playing some outstanding football, so he’d certainly come into the frame for that position.”
