Hull KR winger could miss start of season

Ethan Ryan celebrates try

Hull KR winger Ethan Ryan could miss the start of the 2022 season as he requires surgery on a wrist injury.

Ryan, 25, discovered he needed surgery on the Robins’ first day of pre-season and will be in a cast for eight weeks.

A club statement said: “Hull KR can confirm Ethan Ryan will require wrist surgery in preparation for 2022.

“The surgery a week today will see the Ireland international confined to a cast for 8 weeks before a gradual return to full training.

“While the setback is a blow for the 25-year-old winger, the Robins are excited for Ryan’s return in early 2022.”

The former Bradford winger suffered a fractured scaphoid in the win over Wigan back in August.

He was limited to just five appearances in 2021, having suffered the same injury on the other wrist a year earlier.

Star signing Lachlan Coote is amongst a group of several players to have undergone surgery in the off-season.

Recruited alongside the three-time Super League winning St Helens full-back is Huddersfield utility Sam Wood.

Championship pair Frankie Halton and Tom Garratt have arrived from Featherstone Rovers and Dewsbury.

While Keighley youngster Phoenix Laulu-Togagae’e was signed earlier in the year and then loaned back to the Cougars.

The Robins have lost George Lawler and Greg Minikin to Castleford and Warrington respectively.

Australian full-back Adam Quinlan has also been released, and looks set to return Down Under having failed to secure a deal elsewhere.

Their other confirmed exit so far was youngster Owen Harrison’s departure to Dewsbury Rams.
