Mitch Garbutt has played his final game for Hull KR

Hull KR forward Mitch Garbutt has been ruled out for the rest of the season with an elbow injury.

The 31-year-old prop will join Championship side Toulouse on a two-year deal from 2021, and is expected to have played his final game in a Robins jersey.

Hull KR coach Tony Smith said: “He’s had some damage in his elbow for quite some time.

“It’s just progressively got worse and it’s started to agitate him to a point where it’s restricting him to some degree.

“He’s had it for a while now. We got him in to see a consultant last week and they gave him the news that he probably already knew.

“It’s going to need some work, I think it’s about a three to four month that he needs for it to repair. Mitch is used to playing in pain, he’s done it for a fair portion of his career, so he’s not one to shy away from it, but some things get a little too much.”
