Leeds Rhinos confirm Harry Newman injury blow

Harry Newman

Leeds have confirmed that Harry Newman will be sidelined for up to 12 weeks through injury.

Newman, 22, has had successful surgery on his hamstring injury, the club has confirmed.

The centre returned from the same injury earlier this year, making his first appearance of the season in round four against Wakefield.

He scored a try on his winning return, but left the field early. He has been sidelined ever since and will now miss the next few months of action.

The club shared: “Centre Harry Newman has had a successful operation on the hamstring injury suffered at Wakefield in Round 4 and is expected to be out for around 12 weeks.”

Leeds also confirmed that Tom Holroyd and Richie Myler returned to the training field following their injuries.

Myler, 31, suffered a groin injury in the opening game against Warrington at Headingley Stadium. He is still a number of weeks away, and awaits medical clearance to begin the next stage of his rehabilitation. 

Holroyd, 21, is yet to make his first appearance of the season. He suffered an injury at Featherstone in a pre-season game. He is now entering the final stages of his rehabilitation as he looks to return to full training in the coming weeks.

David Fusitu’a set for minor operation

Winger David Fusitu’a is set for a minor operation on his knee injury.

The surgery will keep the Tonga international out of action for a couple of weeks, the club has confirmed.

Fusitu’a, 27, made the switch to Super League during the off-season with the Rhinos from New Zealand Warriors on a two-year deal. He made more than 100 appearances in the NRL, having made his debut in 2014.

The winger has only played three games so far this season for Leeds. He missed two matches after suffering concussion in round one. He also did not feature in their defeats to Salford and Castleford due to a knee injury.
