Bizarre image emerges of Super League star after awful injury

Though we will see some huge games today as Warrington Wolves and Hull FC collide and Wigan Warriors head over to France for a top of the table clash prior to a big derby tomorrow with Leeds Rhinos headed over to Huddersfield Giants.

But last night there were some big games as Castleford Tigers took on St Helens, Wakefield Trinity headed over to Salford Red Devils and in a Challenge Cup Final rematch Hull KR and Leigh Leopards met.

Clearly, Hull KR had something to say after Wembley heart break and three defeats against Leigh.

Minutes into the game, George King threw himself into the a tackle colliding with Ben Nakubuwai instantly splitting the skin on his cheek causing him to bleed an awful lot sadly.

However, somewhat humorously he had it bandaged leading to this bizarre image.

This laid down a real marker for the Robins who caused an awful lot of damage with some top notch rugby league from a much more balanced Hull KR side.

After a really strong start, Hull KR probed the line and as Brad Schneider moved across the pitch before a short ball and a great angled run allowed Shaun Kenny-Dowall to carve through and score.

After a yellow card against Leigh at Wembley which resulted in a ban, Minchella meant business as he powered over after good work from Matt Parcell.

A great player saw Mikey Lewis generate space and Ryan Hall danced down the touch line before a forward roll over the line saw him touch down.

Jack Walker was having a superb game for the Robins in a rare appearance and he linked up in a sweeping play to feed Louis Senior to score who produced a scruffy finish.

After an error from Tom Briscoe after a high kick, Lewis was on hand to take the bouncing ball and score in the corner.
