Hull FC star gives important injury update and speaks about Rugby League World Cup Final

Hull FC may have some exciting new faces headed through the door for the 2023 season not least new coach and former Leeds Rhinos and Warrington Wolves boss Tony Smith.

But they will also have some players back from injury such as Joe Cator and of course Carlos Tuimavave.

He gave an encouraging update on his return from injury to the club’s website.

“It’s progressing really nicely. I had a bit of a run on the grass earlier this week and I’m hoping to involve a bit of work with the footy next week, so it’s going well so far,” he said.

“Obviously the recovery from an Achilles injury is a long process, so it’s important that we take things step-by-step, but it’s looking good so far.

“Closer to when I first suffered the injury, I wasn’t too focused on putting a return time on it. But now I’m looking at making a comeback in Round One.

“At the same time, I don’t want to put too much pressure on myself, so I won’t be rushing anything for sure, but I am aiming for Round One at the moment.”

Battling hard to return from injury, he may be a little distracted by this week’s Rugby League World Cup Final as his teammate Ligi Sao represents the country of their heritage.

“It’s amazing that the team has got this far in the tournament and it makes me really proud of my Samoan heritage,” Tuimavave told the club’s website.

“I’ve dropped Ligi a few messages of congratulations over the last couple of weeks, letting him know how proud we all are of him.

“It’s also really good for Hull FC that one of our players is going to play in a World Cup Final, so that’s something we should celebrate.”
