Hull KR have confirmed forward Dean Hadley will miss the rest of the season after picking up a shoulder injury.

Hadley picked up the injury during the Robins’ 15-10 win over Wakefield Trinity. The club have confirmed the injury will require surgery to fix.

However, his future will be at the Robins, after signing a deal to stay at the club for the 2023 season.

Another injury worry for them is Ryan Hall. Hall tore his calf during the Robins’ win over Warrington, and will see a specialist to determine whether or not the injury will need surgery to fix.

Half-back Mikey Lewis is another worry, with the club confirming he picked up a high ankle sprain. He will work with the club’s medical team to determine what the next step is.

Another two that will definitely miss Thursday’s game against Wigan are Jimmy Keinhorst and Shaun Kenny-Dowall. Keinhorst failed a HIA during the Warrington match, while Kenny-Dowall is still recovering after taking a blow to the throat against Wakefield. However, both will be in contention against Toulouse.

Albert Vete will also miss this week’s match, as he continues to recover from an abscess.

On a positive note, the club confirmed both Frankie Halton and Matty Storton should both return against Toulouse. They have been out with shoulder and toe injuries respectively. Kane Linnett should also return in August.

No date has been set yet for Jordan Abdull, Brad Takairangi and Luis Johnson to return, as they are still in rehab. It is a similar story for Dan Okoro, who will begin the next stage of his recovery once his cast is removed.
