Hull centre Josh Griffin has vowed to come back physically and mentally stronger after suffering a season-ending injury.
The 31-year-old suffered a horror injury to his Achilles tendon in their Challenge Cup semi-final defeat to St Helens on Saturday.
Griffin, who would have been hoping to represent England at the World Cup this autumn, is determined to come back stronger than ever before.
Griffin wrote on Instagram: “Absolutely gutted to announce that my season has come to end.
“I will have an operation tomorrow on my Achilles tendon and begin my long recovery phase.
“The last few days have been mentally some of the toughest of my life but I’m determined to come back from this both physically and mentally stronger. I’ve got an amazing support system around me to help me do so.
“Thank you to everyone who has reached out to me to show their support it’s helped more than you will ever know. See you all in 2022.”
