Cronulla Sharks Andrew Fifita in induced coma after throat injury

Sharks star Andrew Fifita is reportedly in an induced coma after being rushed to hospital in an ambulance on Sunday night.

The club earlier confirmed the former NSW State of Origin star suffered a serious throat injury during his team’s loss to Newcastle on Sunday.

The 32-year-old had a heavy collision with Knights star Tyson Frizell early in the second half, but it remains unclear if that is the contact that caused the injury.

The club has confirmed via a statement that Fifita suffered a “significant” laryngeal injury.

According to reports he experienced breathing difficulties and was treated by paramedics at Moreton Daily Stadium in Redcliffe after first being taken into the Cronulla dressing room to receive treatment from the club’s medical team.
