Carlos Tuimavave’s ‘weird’ development as Brett Hodgson gives important update on Jamie Shaul and Andre Savelio

Brett Hodgson’s Hull FC have been doing it difficult in 2022 on the injury front.

A number of the East Yorkshire side’s stars have been sidelined for a great deal of time, including Carlos Tuimavave.

The Black and Whites centre has hardly played in the 2022 campaign and Hodgson revealed his injury is a ‘weird’ one.

“It’s a very weird one,” Hodgson told Hull Live.

“We’re trying to understand exactly why it’s taken so long.

“He ran today so it will be a matter of how he recovers from that and we obviously want him back as soon as possible. I don’t know if he’ll be right for Friday, hopefully he will, if not hopefully Warrington and if not as soon as possible.

“We’ll have to name our squad tomorrow but he ran today so we’ll make that decision closer to the game.”

There is also a concern on Andre Savelio who took a hefty challenge to the knee.

“He’s OK, it was more of an impact injury and not too shortly after the game it settled down a little bit,” he said. “I think he was more concerned that there would be a major issue because he’s had issues with his knee in the past, but it’s OK.”

Jamie Shaul will also be absent for Hull on Friday, but may play a few days later on Easter Monday, Hodgson confirmed: “He won’t feature against Hull KR but there’s still a chance that he could potentially feature against Warrington.”
