On the eve of his comeback from a horrific facial injury that prevented him from being able to eat solid food, Sia Soliola has revealed the lengths he went to have a takeaway meal.
"I actually tried to blend KFC," the Raiders forward told NRL.com. "It was all soft foods so everything had to be blended. I actually had the idea to blend KFC, pizza, a Big Mac or pretty much anything."
Not that the 34-year-old would recommend it after recovering from surgery that required 20 screws to repair seven facial fractures after a sickening head clash with St George Illawarra prop Blake Lawrie during their round 8 clash on July 3.
The return of Soliola two weeks before the finals is a massive boost to Canberra's premiership hopes as he was initially expected to miss the remainder of the season.
