Hull FC boss Brett Hodgson gives damning news on Adam Swift and Luke Gale as ANOTHER star set for spell on sidelines

Hull FC head coach Brett Hodgson has confirmed a triple whammy of injuries ahead of the Black and Whites’ fixture against Leeds Rhinos this weekend.

One of those that will be sidelined will be winger Adam Swift who left the field in agony against Warrington Wolves with a suspected broken leg.

“He’s not great at the moment,” Hodgson told the Yorkshire Post on Swift.

“He had an X-ray but it didn’t show anything definitive so he’s having an MRI tomorrow. On the weekend we should have more definitive proof of what’s going on.

“He’s in a bit of pain at the moment. He had a plate inserted in that same leg many years ago so we thought there might have been an irritation with that.

“The X-ray didn’t show anything other than that. Hopefully that’s all it is but the fact he’s still in substantial pain probably indicates there is a fracture in there that’s been missed.”

Luke Gale will also miss this weekend’s fixture.

“He’s just got to go through the concussion protocol,” said Hodgson.

“He’s fine. There are no issues around him but he won’t be available this week.”

Hodgson confirmed that another forward will miss out after suffering an injury in training.

“Manu has unfortunately strained his hamstring earlier in the week after the game,” said Hodgson.

“He’ll be unavailable. It’s looking like he’ll maybe be two or three weeks, at best.”
