Cunningham confirms Walsh’s likely April return

St Helens coach Keiron Cunningham has revealed that half-back Luke Walsh should be back in action in April.

Walsh has been out of action since breaking his leg last July. While out, he has also required surgery on an ankle problem.

The 27-year-old scrum-half made 18 appearances for Saints before his injury, and will hopefully be back out on the pitch within a matter of weeks.

“He had complications with his ankle before he did his leg and we got that sorted out after his leg had healed,” Cunningham said.

“There have been a few complications with the bits and bobs (screws and plates) inside his leg so they have been removed.

“It was the right thing to do for Luke. It feels like a normal leg to him now – no screws or plates in the bones. He is in a good place now and hopefully will be back around the start to the second week of April.”
