The injury took place during a contest in the opening 30 seconds of the match, with Trigg immediately taken to the bench and playing no further part in the game.  

Beaufort president Brien Leckie said it had been a “shattering” blow for the 32-year-old veteran, who has been at the club since he was a junior.
