Keep up to date with all the latest injury news in Super League in Casualty Ward, our new weekly feature on Love Rugby League.

Salford centre Dan Sarginson will spend a lengthy spell on the sidelines. The 28-year-old was named in Shaun Wane’s first England squad of 2022 last week, but he has now been ruled out for the long-term.

On Dan Sarginson, Red Devils coach Paul Rowley said: “

Danny Richardson out for three months

Castleford’s goal-kicking half-back Danny Richardson has been ruled out for up to three months with a neck injury. He suffered the injury in their first game of the season.

Tigers coach Lee Radford said: “There is a bone fracture in there and it is eight weeks with a brace on. Past that, you’ve got to strengthen everything up in and around there.”

Hull injury blows

Hull FC have suffered two injury blows to outside-backs Darnell McIntosh and Connor Wynne.

McIntosh didn’t play in Sunday’s defeat at Castleford, but he will miss the next couple of weeks.

Hull coach Brett Hodgson said: “He has a calf strain, so he’ll be missing for a couple of weeks.”

Centre Wynne suffered an arm injury in their defeat to Castleford. Hodgson added: “He got an elbow subluxation which is concerning. We don’t have too many centres left available.”

Castleford duo Niall Evalds and Nathan Massey didn’t play in the match against Hull due to hamstring injuries.

Arthur Romano return

Catalans centre Arthur Romano marked his comeback from an 18-month injury lay-off with a try in their win over Warrington on Friday.

Winger Fouad Yaha pulled out of the game in the warm-up due to a hamstring injury.
