Scans reveal Joe Bullock has a fractured hand

Post by josie andrews » Tue Sep 15, 2020 10:54 am

Joe Bullock is set to be sidelined for between two to four weeks.

A scan revealed the prop has a fractured bone in his hand which he suffered in the 28-12 victory at Catalans, coach Adrian Lam revealed.

Prop Ben Flower can’t replace him in the side yet – he has one more game of a suspension to run, while forward Morgan Smithies is also still suspended.

Meanwhile, Lam is waiting for a Covid-19 test result on Sean O’Loughlin to see whether he can play against Hull FC on Saturday.

The captain was due to face Catalans but withdrew when a family member developed coronavirus symptoms.

One other player – whose identity hasn’t been revealed – is still self-isolating after a positive test.

Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

Hope they give Joe time to recover and not rushing him back.
We do have cover, however young, and Flower will be back for the Wakey game.
