Hull KR boss Tony Smith provides extensive injury update on the likes of Mikey Lewis and Matt Parcell

Tony Smith’s Hull KR have been going through a tough time on the injury front as of late.

The likes of Jordan Abdull and Brad Takairangi will be out for the rest of the season, whilst a trio of stars have also had head knocks.

However, Smith provided positive news on those three.

“Will Dagger is fine and passed all his protocols and everything that he needs to pass,” Smith said.

“Dean (Hadley) has got to get it ticked off with a consultant because it’s his second in a year – we will have that result this afternoon, but he’s passed all his tests with us. Matty Storton is fine too.”

The Rovers boss could also welcome back livewire Mikey Lewis who has been out for two months after suffering a syndesmosis injury to his ankle ligaments.

“We are hoping he might be right for Salford and we are still hopeful but it’s just touch and go.

“He didn’t train the other day because as you build up the workload on the injury like he has it’s a bit more tender on some days.

“He trained again today and hopefully he is getting that step closer but he’s going to see the consultant this afternoon. It was significant ankle ligament damage, but he is right on track or even ahead of schedule.”

Smith also gave news on Sam Wood and Matt Parcell.

“Sam Wood is doing good, he will be touch and go for this week but he’s coming through his recovery cycle and we are hopeful of it. He had a patella dislocation so it was a tender injury but he’s come a long way with it.

“Matt Parcell is good and cleared everything today and was able to train in every aspect of training unless he has a setback from now until Sunday.”
