Hull prop Josh Bowden sidelined for up to six weeks

Josh Bowden is set to return for Hull this week

Hull will be without prop Josh Bowden for up to six weeks due to injury.

The 29-year-old, who has made 168 appearances for Hull, suffered a hyper-extended elbow in their win over Wakefield last Friday.

Hull coach Brett Hodgson said: “He’s got a fracture and some ligament damage in his forearm.

“He’s seeing a specialist on Friday but unfortunately it looks like he’ll be sidelined for up to six weeks.”

Hull face a trip to Wigan on Thursday night and Hodgson admits his team are still evolving and believes a trip to last year’s league leaders will provide a useful yardstick to measure their potential.

He said: “We’ve spoken about how we can continue to improve and evolve as a team.

“Obviously it’s a big test going up against Wigan, it is going to be a good indicator of where we are as a group.”
