James Roby to undergo surgery on groin

St Helens captain James Roby is expected to miss a month as he is set to undergo groin surgery this week.

The 33-year-old has been in and out of the Saints squad this season due to the injury, making 14 appearances in total.

After Saints’ 23-22 defeat to London on Sunday, St Helens coach Justin Holbrook confirmed in his press conference that Roby will undergo surgery on his groin this week.

He said: “Robes has been struggling with it for a while.

“He’ll get some minor surgery this week so he’ll probably miss four weeks.”

Roby is set to miss upcoming games against Huddersfield, Leeds, Warrington and Hull FC.
