Cox suffers ruptured spleen

Hull KR confirmed that youngster Jordan Cox endured a ruptured spleen after last weekend’s U20’s match against Wigan.

Cox, 19, fell ill immediately after the game and was taken to hospital where he discovered the extent of his injury. After receiving treatment from Wigan infirmary, Cox is now in the process of recovering at home.

Mike Smith, the CEO of Hull KR, said: “It was obviously a serious problem for Jordan and we’re delighted that he’s on the mend. I’ve spoken to his mum, and both she and Jordan are very appreciative of the many get well messages that have found their way to him over the last few days.

Smith added: “We’d also like to pass on our sincere thanks to the Wigan Warriors who have been very supportive of Jordan and his family whilst he’s been in Wigan Infirmary.

“That support once again shows that in times of trouble, rugby league is one big family that’s willing to pull together and offer help when it’s needed. Obviously everyone associated with the club wishes Jordan a speedy recovery and we look forward to seeing him in the red and white shirt again before too long.”

Promising Second-Row Cox will hope to make a full recovery and return with the intention of building on his fantastic Hull KR debut in the Challenge Cup against York City Knights in 2011, where he managed two tries and caught the eye of the fans and management throughout.
