"We want a full report," Raiders chief executive Don Furner told NRL.com.

"It's very, very disappointing, particularly for Josh. We also had Joe Tapine injured in the other game [quarter-final], so it's also hard on the club.

''We noticed he did seem to go down and get an injury to his knee and then stayed on and did it again.

"So we want to know from the England medical team how their assessment went. We have a duty of care to our players so we've asked for a full report so we can take it from there.''

Hodgson could not put a time frame on his return, but it is likely he will miss majority of the 2018 season.

“I’ll have surgery next week and it’ll be all recovery from then on,” Hodgson said.

“It’s more important that I stay here and I get my body right and knee right and ready to go.

“I just need to get myself right and I’ll look after myself.”

Canberra asked the NRL for salary cap compensation, but it was knocked back because Hodgson was on international duty when the injury occured.
