The amount of injuries being suffered in rugby league in recent times is quite harrowing.
A significant amount of muscle tissue problems as well as more longer-term issues such as MCLs and ACLs are becoming more common.
Therefore, we thought it would be a good idea to note which stars succumbed to injuries in the round of fixtures just gone.
Leeds Rhinos went down narrowly to Catalans Dragons on Thursday night as Wigan Warriors just about overcame Huddersfield Giants on the same evening.
Hull KR finally got their first win of the season against a dismal Castleford Tigers whilst St Helens notched up another win over a stubborn Wakefield Trinity.
