Ex-Super League star suffers horror injury opening door for Leeming exit

Former Huddersfield Giants star Danny Levi has suffered a horror injury.

The hooker will undergo surgery on a fractured jaw following the game against the Cronulla Sharks.

He will miss the next 8-10 weeks of action up until Round 12.

According to the Daily Telegraph, in the same incident Levi had his teeth knocked out and they were never recovered from the field in what was a truly nasty injury.

However, with such a long absence in coming for the hooker who is replacing former Hull FC and Hull KR hooker Josh Hodgson who joined Parramatta Eels this season after a long term injury in 2022.

This long term injury could open the door for Leeds Rhinos star Kruise Leeming to achieve his move out of Headingley.

Rugby League Live reported that Leeds Rhinos are willing to allow former captain and Challenge Cup winner Kruise Leeming to leave the club.

Leeming has worn the number nine shirt at Leeds since 2020 and has made 65 appearances for the Rhinos during a time in which he forced his way into the England setup having been named in the 2021 Super League Dream Team.

An injury last year saw him miss out on the World Cup with Jarrod O’Connor replacing him as the club’s starting nine which was a trend that went all the way to the Grand Final and has been assumed again recently.

This is perhaps why Leeming is interested in an exit to ensure more game time.

Leeming has again been left out of the side tonight after recovering from a foot injury sustained against St Helens.

Then Brian Carney revealed that Leeming could be headed to the NRL.

Could the Raiders therefore be a destination for Leeming after this injury.
