Injury Update – Challenge Cup
Following today’s news of Elliot Minchella’s season-ending injury, Head Coach Tony Smith has given a further injury update on the remainder of the squad.
Smith said: “Brad Takairangi will be another week, he won’t be fit for the Cas game. Maybe for Huddersfield fingers crossed if things continue.
“Will Maher is ahead of schedule perhaps two or three weeks away from returning.
“He (Joe Keyes) hasn’t returned to full training just yet, but he won’t be far off. He has had a couple of weeks of just being uncomfortable with his back. It’s nothing major but it has been enough to hamper him.
“Joe only got about ten or fifteen minutes in that preseason game. He probably would’ve liked a bit more time but that was hampered by his prep in his preseason with his back and hamstring niggles.
“It’s been a bit frustrating for him but hopefully we can get him back through that period and get him fit, confident and strong again. When he gets that way we can throw him in there and he will do a good job for us.”Back To Latest News +
