Hull KR reveal star will be out for THREE MONTHS with ruptured pec as Tony Smith faces selection dilemma

Hull KR have given a squad injury update following the side’s spirited loss to St Helens in Round 15.

Sadly, Luis Johnson left the field with a ruptured pectoral early on during KR’s clash against St Helens. Johnson is due to undergo surgery this week and will miss around 12 weeks.

Jordan Abdull (quad tear), Brad Takairangi (hamstring tear) are continuing their respective rehabilitations with the club and are managing well.

Kane Linnett is also progressing well following surgery on his ruptured bicep and may be available to feature within the team in the next two months.

Dan Okoro underwent surgery to repair a ligament in his wrist and looks to make a comeback in September.

Unfortunately, young Robin, Charlie Cavanagh, dislocated his kneecap during the reserves’ enthusiastic win over Huddersfield. He is expected to return to play within the next six weeks.

Hull KR will go up against Huddersfield Giants this Sunday with the game broadcast live on Sky Sports with Tony Smith’s men hunting a play-off spot.

Whilst the Robins are currently sitting in seventh, but only on points difference, the Giants are sitting pretty in the top four with head coach Ian Watson doing wonders in recent seasons at the John Smith’s Stadium.
