Hull KR remain uncertain on health of star, reveals Willie Peters

Hull KR head coach Willie Peters has provided an injury update ahead of their game against London Broncos. 

Stand-off Tyrone May came off in their derby victory over Hull FC on Friday, and Peters didn’t give too much away: “Yeah, Tyrone’s okay.

“There’s a few knocks and players that we need to have a look at later in the week to make a decision. So we’ll just see where it’s at.”

Peters was then given an opportunity to reveal which players are ’50-50′ for the match.

“Dean Hadley’s got a tight calf, so he’s one that we need to monitor and have a look at.

“Obviously, there’s Oli Gildart that needs to get through some other protocols. So I’m not sure whether he’ll play at this stage.

“Joe Burgess has got an issue. So there’s a few there.”

He was then asked if Gildart was progressing alright with his HIA, but his answer offered just as much uncertainty as clarity with the club awaiting tests further in the week.

“Yeah, he is. Again, we’ll know a little bit more later on in the week.”

It has since been confirmed that Gildart doesn’t feature in the club’s 21-Man Squad to face London Broncos which could indicate that Gildart hasn’t passed his checks, or may be a precautionary measure.

George King is expected to be out for a while longer with a hamstring injury, and Peters provided an update: “George is doing OK. It’s obviously early-ish, isn’t it?

“It’s only a couple of weeks since he’s had his injury, so he’s doing OK. He’s not running, obviously, and he’s not part of the team.”

“But so far, so good with George. He’s doing everything he can.”

Compared to other Super League sides, and certainly their city rivals, they’ve fared fairly well in terms of injuries, but the head coach didn’t want to go into this too much.

“To be honest I don’t like to give it too much, it’s rugby league, you can have injuries.

“So I’m not gonna give it too much – no disrespect – just yeah, you can have many injuries one week and then you might not have any for a while. We’re going okay at the moment, so yeah, as I say, no disrespect but I don’t want to go there.”

Hull KR host London Broncos on Friday at 8pm, and expect a home sell-out.
