Returning Broncos outside back Jordan Kahu has undergone surgery to repair the AC joint in his shoulder.

After a year away at the Cowboys, Kahu has returned to Brisbane but after undergoing surgery is now facing a race against time to be fit for round one of 2020.

Continual injuries have forced Matt McIlwrick to retire from rugby league after eight seasons in the game. In total, McIlwrick played 56 NRL matches in stints for the Raiders, Roosters, Sharks, Wests Tigers and Eels.

Gun Sea Eagles forwards Jake Trbojevic and Addin Fonua-Blake will both sit out the entire summer with shoulder surgery expected to rule them out of the opening rounds of 2020.

The Bulldogs have conformed that five-eighth Kieran Foran will miss at least six months after he undergoes a shoulder reconstruction.
