Hull KR fear worst for Lannon
Hull KR coach Tim Sheens says prop Ryan Lannon could be out of action for up to 10 weeks with a foot injury.
Lannon joined KR from Salford Red Devils ahead of the current campaign and had settled in well with his new club, but Sheens fears the 23-year-old could now be missing until May.
"The scan shows syndesmosis, a splitting of the bones in the foot," said Sheens, as reported by the Yorkshire Post. "We've another X-ray yet and it could be a month or five weeks but, if it is what we think it is, it could be 10 weeks.
"It is a blow; he’s a young pair of legs and he has a lot of ability. We have him on a three-year deal but he's not happy about the injury because a number of the senior guys are down. It would have been a great chance for him to cement himself a spot."
