Cayless Cup doubt for Saints

St Helens prop Jason Cayless has been ruled out for six to eight weeks, after suffering medial knee ligament damage.nnThe New Zealand international, 28, could miss the huge Challenge Cup semi-final clash with Leeds on July 26, after suffering the injury during Friday night’s 52-10 win over Hull KR.nnHe was involved in an altercation with Rovers second rower Clint Newton, in which he was caught with a late high tackle and then struck in the face on the floor.nnLoose forward Chris Flannery, also 28, has suffered a similar injury, but has a slightly better chance of featuring in next month’s semi.nn”We are glad that they are not cruciate injuries but it will be touch and go for the semi-final for Flannery, let alone Cayless,” said head coach Daniel Anderson.nn”It’s tough because Mike Bennett and Nick Fozzard are not available but we have a good squad that are beginning to hit top form,” he added.
