Hull KR boss Willie Peters says that Ryan Hall is in contention to feature this Friday against Leigh just a week after undergoing a minor operation.

England international Hall, 35, missed last Friday’s victory over Wakefield in Super League having had minor surgery on his knee.

Joining on loan ahead of the Round 16 clash from Catalans, Fouad Yaha filled in the vacant spot on the wing in the 28-12 victory at Craven Park.

He was sin-binned on his first appearances and fined £250 for a Grade B high tackle, but escaped a suspension.

It means the record Catalans try-scorer is available for selection again for the Robins, having joined on a two-week loan deal, while Louis Senior scored twice in the most recent triumph.

“He’s recovering well,” Peters said on Hall.

“We’re hoping he’s going to be OK for Friday. He’s got to get through captain’s run and then we’ll make a call later on in the week.

“It’s only been a week and a little bit since his operation.

“He’ll be touch and go, but he’s still a chance to play.”

Meanwhile, the Australian coach confirmed that the side have extended the loan deal for full-back Tanguy Zenon by a further two weeks from Catalans, while Jack Walker most recently featured for Bradford in the Championship against Toulouse.

France international Zenon, 21, initially joined the club on a two-week loan deal, featuring in the recent wins over Salford and Wakefield, scoring a try on his debut in the 28-10 home win over the Red Devils in the Challenge Cup.

“Catalans have allowed Tanguy to stay with us for an extra two weeks, but they can call him back at any time,” Peters confirmed.

“If they have any reason to call him back, they can at any stage. But we’ve got the extra two weeks there.

“Tanguy for a young guy, obviously being here for that first week, showed his quality in that first game.”
