Former Warriors player Ian Henderson has suffered an horrific leg break on Thursday, which has all but ended his season just three games in.

The 32-year-old, now playing for the Sydney Roosters after a stint in England's Super League, attempted to tackle North Queensland Cowboys star Ethan Lowe in the dying minutes when his right leg bucked underneath him.

The former Catalans and Warriors player was left in agony moments later before medical staff rushed onto the field, where they could assess the situation.

There was clear concern over the condition of Henderson, with an ambulance brought on to the field after the final whistle.


Early reports suggest Henderson has suffered a compound fracture to his right leg but his club are yet to make a statement on the injury.

Henderson returned to Australia earlier this year after agreeing a deal with the Sydney-based side but his campaign now looks over before its even begun.

The English-born star has had a stellar career in rugby league and played for the likes of Bradford Bulls, Warriors and the Dragons.

But it was a bad day all-round for the Roosters, who were thrashed by the Cowboys as their miserable start to the NRL season continues.
