Josh Griffin provides huge update in Achilles recovery

Josh Griffin has, for the first time since rupturing his Achilles, completed his first run back on the rugby league field.

The Hull FC centre has spent a long time on the sidelines after suffering the horrific Achilles tendon injury in Hull FC’s Challenge Cup semi-final defeat to St Helens way back at the start of June.

But, Griffin – who may well have represented England at this year’s World Cup had it gone ahead and had he been fit – looks to be well on the road to recovery.

The 31-year-old posted: “WE MADE IT!!.. todays been a good day, after 4 months I’ve laced the boots back up and completed my first run on grass. Feeling heavy and unfit but now the real fun starts”.

It’s a rebuilding stage for Brett Hodgson’s men going into the 2022 season following a disappointing end to 2021, with nine losses from ten games setting the tone for a big pre-season.
