Injury Update: Round 20

Hull KR can provide a squad injury update from Round 20 following the Robins spirited 30-22 win over Warrington.

For the clash with the Wolves, KR finished the game with only 13 fit players with Jimmy Keinhorst, Ryan Hall, Greg Richards and Mikey Lewis all going down in the win. 

Keinhorst failed his HIA after sustaining a concussion early in the game due to a head clash. The German international will be available next week following his completion of the concussion return to play protocols.

Ryan Hall tore his calf in the win over Warrington and be missing for the upcoming run of games. The injury is a big blow to the Robins and will require Hall to see a specialist later this week to determine if the injury needs surgery. Later in the contest, Richards pulled up with a hamstring injury but the prop is still in with a chance of featuring for the Robins against Wigan.

Sadly, Mikey Lewis went down in the final quarter with an ankle injury following an unfortunate twist in the tackle from Oliver Holmes. The mercurial halfback has sustained a high-grade sprain in his right ankle. However, the injury is not to the same ankle Lewis suffered a similar injury to earlier this season.

Following the injury, the Robins’ medical staff will monitor Lewis’ injury over the next week to determine the appropriate course of action.

Shaun Kenny-Dowall is still recovering from the blow he took to his throat during the win over Wakefield. The Robins’ captain will not feature this week but will be pushing for selection when the Robins return to Sewell Group Craven Park next Thursday to face Toulouse.

It’s been confirmed that Dean Hadley will require surgery after suffering a shoulder dislocation in the win over Wakefield Trinity. Hadley will return for KR in 2023 having signed a new one-year extension with the club.

Albert Vete will not be feature after having difficulties with an abscess late last week. The Tongan forward is now recovering and will be vying for a place in KR’s squad in the coming weeks.

For next week’s clash against Toulouse, Frankie Halton (AC shoulder joint rupture) and Matty Storton (dislocated toe) will also be in contention after recovering from their respective injuries, giving Danny McGuire reinforcements in the pack ready for Toulouse.

Similarly, Kane Linnett is edging closer to near fitness with an August return pencilled in for the Big Red Machine, if all goes well with the remainder of his rehabilitation.

Both Jordan Abdull (quad tear), Brad Takairangi (hamstring tear) and Luis Johnson (pectoral tear) are still undertaking rehabilitation with the club as they continue to progress from their respective injuries.

Once he has his cast removed in a week’s time, Dan Okoro can begin the next stage of his rehabilitation.
