Aiton out for three months

Leeds hooker Paul Aiton has been ruled out for three months to treat an undisclosed medical condition.

Aiton, 28, has missed the Rhinos’ last two matches, and will undergo a course of prescribed medication to aid his recovery.

Rhinos chief executive Gary Hetherington explained: “Paul is desperately disappointed because he feels fit and healthy but after tests and consultation with a specialist he has been advised that he needs a course of medication.  

“He will not be able to play whilst taking this medication until he has made a full recovery.  

“This process is expected to be about 12 weeks, but he will be monitored on a monthly basis.”

Aiton, who joined Leeds from Wakefield in the close season, has made six appearances for the Rhinos this season.

He said: “I’m so enjoying being part of the Rhinos team and really disappointed I will be out for so long.  But, I’ll do all I have to and be back raring to go.”
