Catalans Dragons provide Jordan Abdull injury update

Jordan Abdull

Catalans Dragons have provided an injury update on their English half-back Jordan Abdull after the playmaker left the field early on in the Round Seven Super League win over St Helens.

Abdull joined Catalans in a surprise move ahead of the 2024 season, leaving Hull KR to take his talents to the South of France and play under Steve McNamara.

The move was confirmed to be a loan move, however, at any point during the deal Catalans could make the deal permanent which effectively signified the end of Abdull’s Hull KR career, putting an end to his four-year stint at Craven Park.

One of the key issues that Abdull suffered from whilst at KR was a lack of playing time due to his injury problems, the 28-year-old failing to play more than 16 games in any of those four seasons and making a total of just 55 appearances in his four years.

As such he averaged just under 14 games a season and after just seven games for his new club Catalans, it looks like the Englishman is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

Abdull left the field early on in Catalans 14-8 win over St Helens and the club have now provided an injury update confirming the diagnosis.

It read: “Jordan Abdull underwent scans to determine the extent of his injury after leaving the field injured during the match against St Helens.

“The scans have revealed that he has injured the biceps femoris muscle in his left hamstring.

“His recovery will determine his availability.”

With this being yet another hamstring injury for Abdull it’s hard to predict his recovery time but it will very likely be a case of weeks if not months that the Englishman is sidelined, a major blow for Catalans.

One positive from the club’s Challenge Cup defeat at the weekend was that Jayden Nikorima did return meaning that there is a ready-made replacement for Abdull but it won’t be much solace after what Steve McNamara described as a “humiliating defeat”.

Abdull’s injury also means that he will miss the upcoming game against former club Hull KR with the Robins travelling to Perpignan in a game that will see ex-Dragons’ star Tyrone May take the field against his former club.

That game will be televised on Sky Sports with details of that match and all Super League games on TV available here.
