Further update provided on Jack Croft after worrying injury

Yesterday, for the second day in a row, we sadly saw a player stretchered off at the Magic Weekend.

Jack Croft was the player this time and it came after a collision with Leigh Leopards winger Josh Charnley.

Croft, playing at centre yesterday, had only just signed for the club once again after leaving the club at the end of last season.

Yesterday there was an update from Sky Sports’ Jenna Brooks. She confirmed he was being assessed but that it is mostly precautionary.

She also stated that it was a head and neck issue.

Then a further update came from Sky that he was conscious and talking but wa headed to hospital.

The incident follows the worrying scenes we saw on Saturday when James Batchelor was stretchered off for Hull KR.

Wakefield have now provided an update on Croft and Josh Bowden with Bowden ironically the one ruled out against Leeds Rhinos.

Josh Bowden: unfortunately has suffered a concussion which will see him ruled out of our tie against Leeds Rhinos this Sunday.

Jack Croft: Crofty has been cleared of any serious injury and will be back in contention to play as soon as the symptoms of his injury settle.
