Super League star makes salary cap joke about injured teammates

Hull KR have been doing it tough in terms of injuries lately.

But they have managed well largely due to their pack and players like Jesse Sue.

The big prop though made a joke at the expense of injured stars Lachlan Coote and Jordan Abdull:

“Yeah, that’s half the salary gone right there mate with those two players. That’s a joke.

“Like I said before, we’ve had a tough season. So the boys have stepped up. They’ve done a tremendous job so far.

“But yeah, we’re sitting in a good position on the ladder there. But we’re only halfway through the season, so we can’t be happy there. We’ve got to keep striving for greatness and hopefully climb the ladder a bit higher.”

Coote could feature at the Magic Weekend this week confirmed Willie Peters:

“Yeah so he’s working towards being back this week. He’s training well and we’re hopeful he’ll take his place this weekend.

“It’s been four weeks so he’s been out for four weeks for three games and it was unfortunate for him and unfortunate for us that he has been out.

“But he’s worked hard to put himself in the picture again for this week. We’re hopeful that he’ll be okay to play. There’s no doubt that it’s a position at the moment that we’re lacking a little bit of depth in.

“He’s likely to play. He did a session today. We didn’t do the full session because that’s what we wanted to build him up. So we’ve got another session and the captain’s run and then he’ll be ready to go off the back of that. So at this stage, yeah, he’ll play.”

Meanwhile, star halfback Abdull isn’t far behind:

“We are getting back to where we were previously with our full strength team. Obviously, Jordan’s the one that won’t be there this weekend.

“Everyone else is pretty much eligible to play and got their hand up to play and be selected.

“Jordan will hopefully be next week. Rowan Milnes is  a couple of weeks away.

“Obviously we lost both our number sevens in the space of those two-week periods, so we’ve done it a little bit tough in that area but Jez Litton certainly put his hand up and doing his best and he’ll continue to keep doing that.

“We know what Jez can do at nine but it was unfortunate to lose Jordan and then Rowan as well.

“So both those guys will be back. Jordan next week and then hopefully we’re looking at Rowan for the week after that.”
