Centre Mark Percival will be out for between eight to 10 weeks after specialists confirmed surgery was required on a hamstring injury.
Percival picked up a hamstring injury in the defeat to Warrington and Head Coach Kristian Woolf revealed earlier this week the Club’s medical staff did everything right in terms of the centre being fit and able to play, having trained injury free, well in advance of last weekend’s game which ultimately saw him limp off.
And speaking to the media ahead of tomorrow’s clash with Wigan, Woolf confirmed: “Unfortunately he is going to be out for an extended period, somewhere in the vicinity of eight to 10 weeks.
“There are a couple of issues there and he will be back to full running at the end of that period, once we get through that there should be no more dramas.
“They found something they think they can repair so there was some surgery.
“That [surgery] will speed up the recovery and rehab time and put him in a much stronger position so we don’t have those problems any further.”
We wish Mark a speedy recovery.
