World Cup likely over for Billy Slater

The Rugby League World Cup is likely to be over for Billy Slater, who suffered a recurrence of an old knee injury in Australia's 62-0 quarter-final win over the United States.

The Kangaroos fullback was carried off after re-injurying his left knee, and while scans on the injury have been inconclusive, it's increasingly likely he won't be fit in time for the final at the end of this month.
