Hull KR back-rower Frankie Halton is set to be sidelined for a few weeks with an ankle injury. 

Halton, 25, rolled his ankle during the club’s Good Friday derby win over Hull at Craven Park. The former Featherstone forward has undergone scans that have revealed a sprain.

He has been ruled out for ‘the next few weeks’ the club has confirmed.

Following the side’s win in Toulouse, Will Dagger will require a scan on a reoccurrence of a knee injury. He first sustained the knock against Leigh in the Challenge Cup.

Hooker Matt Parcell sustained a concussion in the Easter Monday fixture. He will now sit out the mandatory 11 days for a head injury. Tom Garratt also continues to experience concussion symptoms which has delayed his return.

Albert Vete is back in contention for their clash with Wakefield. Dean Hadley also returned during their trip to France.

Hull KR provide Mikey Lewis update

Mikey Lewis has undergone surgery and will now be unavailable for six-to-eight weeks. He picked up the knock during their Challenge Cup victory over Castleford in the quarter-finals.

Elliot Minchella commits long-term future
