Leeds Rhinos’ Harry Newman suffers damning diagnosis as updates given on James Bentley, Cameron Smith and Bodene Thompson

Leeds Rhinos have given an update on the three players injured in Friday’s Betfred Super League win at Hull KR plus more details on a number of other players who are currently receiving treatment to return to play. 

Cameron Smith sustained an open wound in his hand which has been stitched and will return to team training as healing allows.

Scans have revealed that Harry Newman has suffered a new hamstring injury rather than a re-occurrence of the injury that side-lined him earlier this season. Harry has commenced his rehabilitation and the club medical team will work with relevant specialists to aid Harry in his recovery. At this stage, no timescale has been put on his return to play.

Bodene Thompson has had further scans on the rib injury that occurred against Hull KR.

Two players have had successful operations in recent weeks. Youngster Max Simpson had surgery to clear up the ankle injury that forced him off at Toulouse last month and his rehabilitation is progressing well. James Donaldson had a successful clear out of his knee last week is also progressing well with his rehabilitation as he works towards a return to play.

James Bentley, Kruise Leeming and Tom Briscoe are progressing well and will return to full training with the squad in the near future.
