Salford Red Devils forward Mark Flanagan will miss the rest of the campaign with a shoulder injury, the club has confirmed today.
The Red Devils had hoped the Grand Final winner would make a return during the Super 8s.
“Of course, it’s massively disappointing to miss the rest of the season,” Flanagan told the Red Devils website.
“We’re at the most important part of the season as we try and push for a position in the Super League semi-finals and it’s gutting not to be a part of that.
“I’d been hopeful I might be able to come back towards the back end of the Super 8s but realistically I need to rest and recover.
“I have no doubts that the boys will step up in the coming weeks and put the performances in to give us a chance at making it to Old Trafford in October.
Yes, a great loss. A skilful player who I was hoping might make it for the play-offs; but it’s re important that he gets right for next season.
