Ian Watson confirms Huddersfield Giants man suffered broken arm in Hull FC win

Huddersfield Giants overcame Hull FC in superb fashion in their Challenge Cup Quarter-Final last weekend.

However, Huddersfield boss Ian Watson confirmed that one of his main forwards suffered a broken arm in that brilliant win.

“Seb has a little fracture in his arm, we have seen some specialists and we think we can get it right in a short period of time by not plating it,” Watson said in his pre-match press conference.

“Seb is doing everything he can, hopefully he will be only a couple of weeks – he did it in his first spell but he went back out there and did his job which shows what he is like.

“He wants to play and wants to win – we’re trying to get him back three to four weeks but the specialist said it could be longer so he could potentially be out of the semi-final.”

With three games in ten days, a number of players will be asked to back up in such a short space of time, but Watson played down any big concerns.

“You will protect certain players more so than others.

“Younger players will be able to bounce back and come back firing and the older ones might struggle.

“As a group we speak to the players and the medical team to see where we are.”
