Brett Hodgson has told the Hull Daily Mail that star fullback Jake Connor faces a month out with a knee injury.
Connor sustained the injury whilst playing for the Combined Nations All Stars against England and Hodgson confirmed the worst.
“Unfortunately it’s a medial ligament that he’s damaged so we’ll manage that over the next month or so.
“I’d be surprised if he features in the next month but he is a quick healer so he’s looking forward to getting back out there as soon as possible.”
The Hull number one also suffered a jaw problem during the same game, but that doesn’t seem to have affected him since.
