Hull FC player has likely played his last game for the club

Hull FC

Hull FC interim head coach Simon Grix has revealed that Wakefield Trinity bound Cam Scott’s injury is to such a degree that it is likely that he has played his last game for the club.

Wakefield Trinity confirmed last week that they had signed the centre / second-rower for the 2025 season, making him their fourth Super League recruit ahead of their anticipated return to the competition.

He will join the club alongside Catalans and England duo Tom Johnstone and Mike McMeeken, as well as Huddersfield Giants’ playmaker Olly Russell, albeit Scott on a two-year deal relative to the four-year deals handed to the other three.

It’s now been suggested by Simon Grix that Scott could have played his last game for Hull FC with the 24-year-old unlikely to recover from his hamstring tear in the remaining three months of the season.

That was something the club’s interim coach revealed to BBC Humberside when previewing this weekend’s game between Salford Red Devils and Hull FC.

Speaking specifically on Scott, the Hull FC boss Grix told BBC Humberside: “Cam has got a significant hamstring tear and it’s going to be the long end of the scale in terms of recovery.

“Unfortunately, as we’re all aware now, Cam’s moving on at the end of the year, it could be a bit of a shame of a way for him to have finished his full FC career, unfortunately.

“We’ll get around him and he’ll do his rehab and if there’s a chance of playing then it would be great to have him back towards the end of the year there but with three months we’ve got left I think he’ll be pushing it.”

Asked if the expectation was that Scott had played his last game for the club, Grix confirmed: “Potentially, yeah.”

Scott had recently hit out at fans on social media who had speculated on his wages at Wakefield Trinity with he 24-year-old defending his decision to leave the club.

There was also bad news for one of Hull FC’s own recruits with Jed Cartwright expected to miss a “few weeks” after sustaining a foot injury in the Reserves 60-4 thrashing of Leigh Leopards last weekend.

Grix explained:  “Jed stuck around and trained with reserves which was good. He showed that willing to get in there and do his bit. He felt, and we felt, that he was doing good to get some minutes with reserves and unfortunately felt a bit of a pop in his foot.

“That was after about 30 minutes of the game, he was doing a decent job in the game to be fair, getting some cobwebs off I think. So, we’ll be without him for a few weeks now at least.”

Grix confirmed that Cartwright is in a protective boot, something he claimed was just the club being “super cautious” before suggesting that the timeline for a return could be “three to four weeks”, admitting he wasn’t sure.

Both Jack Ashworth and Ligi Sao had an off the ball clash in training, something that the Englishman has come off worse from with Ashworth now expected to be about for approximately eight weeks.

Hull FC boss Grix said: “Jack had one of those off the ball ones. I think he caught Ligi’s foot as they were crossing paths and twisted his ankle and he had some ligaments in his ankle there which he needed corrected via surgery.

“Jack’s going to be, I’d say eight weeks maybe. That’s a bit of a blow for us.

There was better news for Sao though, who could feature this weekend against an injury-riddled Salford.

“I think he’s ruptured a ligament in his ankle, but not a big stabiliser of the ankle. So I think he’s going to be okay. Just got to be careful with him and manage him throughout the week.”
