NATHAN Brown says Josh Perry is unlikely to play again this season.
The 32-year-old prop looks set to have an operation on a pectoral injury he suffered earlier in the season.
“When he hurt his pec at the start of the year the best case scenario was that he didn’t need an operation,” he said. “The second case was he needed an operation and would be gone for the rest of the year.
“The third was for him to have a shot at rehab, and that would take around eight weeks. That was always a 50:50 and came back, tried to play, but he needs an op.
“I suppose if he was a younger player he could have had the op earlier on but as he’s older he wanted to play.
But the injury isn’t right and that means it’s likely this will finish his year but not his career.”
He continues: “It hurts us a little but we have Alex Walmsley, Tony Puletua, Louie, Ant Walker and Anthony Laffranchi will be back this week too.
“Greg Richards from the under 19s has a lot of talent and he will begin to train with us soon once he has finished his A Levels.”
