Jesse Sene-Lefao learns the extent of injury after suffering dislocated shoulder in his first Featherstone Rovers appearance

After suffering a dislocated shoulder in his first ever Featherstone Rovers appearance, Jesse Sene-Lefao didn’t exactly have the best start to life at the Millennium Stadium.

Following an off-season where his enthusiasm was rubbing off on everyone at the Featherstone club, it has been a massive loss, but Rovers have good news.

Sene-Lefao posted on his Instagram: “Not the way I wanted to start the season in the 🔵⚪️ but Got some good news today ! ✅

“After a few scans and seeing specialist for the last couple of weeks .

“No surgery needed. .


“So grateful for all the support and messages, really do appreciate it 🙏🏽

“Rehab on way.”

The Samoan international had left the field in agony in the opening 15 minutes of their first Championship fixture against the York City Knights.

Sene-Lefao had looked certain to score off a neat little Morgan Smith pass, but he knocked on over the line under heavy pressure from York fullback Matty Marsh.

Something didn’t look right and the towering forward was taken off with his arm in a temporary sling as head coach Brian McDermott later confirmed that Sene-Lefao had suffered a dislocated shoulder.

Now, though, the Samoan looks dead set on a rehab program that will get him back on the field to be a crucial figure in Featherstone’s promotion push.
