Head Coach Kristian Woolf has provided an injury update on his squad following the exploits of Wembley as the team prepare to return to training on Thursday - pending test results.
The Club were forced to postpone our last two home games due to positive covid cases, which was naturally disappointing for all involved, not just in terms of the financial Club losses, but the fact we could not celebrate our Challenge Cup win with the fans back at the Totally Wicked Stadium.
But providing test results come back negative, the majority of the squad will be able to return to training on Thursday as we look to prepare for our clash away to Hull FC on Monday live on Sky Sports.
It was revealed earlier this week that Theo Fages broke his shoulder at Wembley and is sadly ruled out for the season, but ahead of the game, Woolf has shed some light on the rest of his squad’s fitness, including Lachlan Coote who was seen in a protective boot during our homecoming parade.
“Lachlan Coote had a lower ankle sprain and would have been in doubt for the game against Hull KR last Friday – but would have been clear for Huddersfield.
“It was a fairly minor injury and he will be fine for Hull FC.
“Joe Batchelor had a head knock and Joel Thompson did cop a knock quite late in the game as well.
“They have all come through well from what was a tough, physically intense game at Wembley – and then add the heat on to that.
“The fatigue the players were under at the end of the game you are always going to get bumps and bangs.
“They had all recovered really well by the time we had come to prepare for last Friday and Hull KR.”
Woolf will hold his weekly press conference with the media on Thursday.
