Super League Injury News: Title challengers suffer major blow

Super League Round Four has now been and gone and it was a terrific weekend of Super League action.

The action started with Hull KR and Warrington Wolves meeting each other on Thursday in a scintillating game.

The action was brilliant from there on out. Leeds Rhinos and Salford Red Devils battled back against Leigh Leopards and St Helens respectively whilst Castleford Tigers were thumped by Huddersfield Giants.

On Saturday, Wigan Warriors defeated London Broncos and Hull FC lost to London Broncos. This concluded a terrific round of rugby league full of tries and drama and has left an interesting look at the top of the table.

Super League Injuries

There were a whole host of injury blows in Super League Round Four. Leeds Rhinos have concerns over the illness that struck James McDonnell and saw him withdrawn from the side. On top of this, they lost Andy Ackers to a shin injury in a game where Lachlan Lam suffered a grotesque cut down his leg.

Salford Red Devils crucially lost Cade Cust to a head injury which will likely rule him out against Wigan Warriors.

Hull FC have three injury concerns in the shape of Matty Russell, Jack Walker and Danny Houghton.

In the same game, Catalans Dragons lost Jayden Nikorima to a hamstring injury, the third of the game, and Chris Satae suffered a head knock.

Big clash set to be hit hard by injuries and potential bans

The biggest game of Super League Round Five is set to be the meeting between the two most successful sides in the history of Super League.

This will see Leeds Rhinos host St Helens on Friday night but with injury and suspension concerns over Leeds hookers Andy Ackers and Jarrod O’Connor.

Meanwhile, St Helens are set to lose Mark Percival and potentially Alex Walmsley for the game against the Rhinos.
