Hull FC’s Joe Cator given devastating news following Leeds Rhinos victory

Hull FC’s Joe Cator has been given the news that he will be out for the rest of the season after rupturing his Achilles.

It is the same injury on the same leg and same Achilles that he ruptured in 2021.

The 23-year-old went down in agony after only just coming onto the field as a substitute against the Leeds Rhinos at Headingley last weekend – his first appearance since August 2021.

Hull head coach Brett Hodgson confirmed he had gone in for surgery.

“Unfortunately, it’s worst case,” Hodgson told BBC Radio Humberside.

“It’s terrible news for Joe, and we’re all devastated for him, but we’ll make sure we pick him up and get him back.

“Whenever you’re coming back from a substantial injury it’s a pretty dark time and you feel pretty lonely but he’s got a good support network from his family.”

He began his career across at Hull KR in 2016, but then had a spell at the Leigh Centurions before making the move to the MKM Stadium in 2020.

His performances for Hull brought the talented back-rower into England Knights contention and also earned him the club’s Young Player of the Year award in 2020.

Everyone at Serious About Rugby League passes on their well wishes to Joe as we hope for a speedy recovery.
