Oldham winger Aaron Jones-Bishop has suffered a season-ending knee injury.
The Jamaica international needs an operation to repair a damaged knee, meaning he will not play again in 2019.
Jones-Bishop helped the Reggae Warriors qualify for the 2021 World Cup last year as they won the Americas Championship.
Oldham coach Scott Naylor commented: “It’s bad news for the squad and the club, but our thoughts are with Aaron, who faces a long lay-off and then a lot of rehab in order to regain full fitness.
“In a contact sport you get injuries like this if you’re unlucky. It’s just one of those things, something we have to deal with.”
