Super League starlet’s season over after “serious injury”

Sadly injuries are a part of sport and no less in rugby league and in Super league especially these days it seems. We have seen some bad injuries so far in 2023 with both James Batchelor of Hull KR and Jack Croft of Wakefield Trinity being stretchered off the field at the Magic Weekend.

Whilst any week with injuries is a bad week, this weekend’s Super League action was favourable for injuries though Leeds Rhinos, Hull KR, Leigh Leopards, St Helens, Huddersfield Giants and Hull FC all suffered blows.

The game with the most injuries was the clash between Leigh and Hull KR with both loose-forwards suffering stinger injuries in the shape of John Asiata and Elliot Minchella.

Fouad Yaha suffered a hamstring injury which was the fate of St Helens star Joe Batchelor.

Elsewhere on Friday, Oliver Russell limped off against Wigan whilst on Saturday Hull FC’s Adam Swift was helped from the field with a nasty back injury.

On Thursday, Aidan Sezer left the field early with a knock.

But the saddest injury news comes about a young player who didn’t feature in the shape of Huddersfield Giants’ Harry Rushton.

The former Wigan forward joined Huddersfield as a major coup from the NRL this year and has been earmarked by Ian Watson as a future England international.

However, the club confirmed his season is over due to “a serious injury.”

The club made the following statement:

“Harry Rushton has suffered a serious injury which has ruled him out for the rest of the season.

“Get well soon Harry, we’ll see you back in 2023.”

This is the second young forward Huddersfield have lost. They have also lost Owen Trout who has likely played his last game for the club as he is expected to join Leigh in 2024.
