Robins rocked by Greenwood injury fears

10th March 2019, 19:44 by Craig Smithson

Hull KR's 10-6 win at Wakefield could have come at a cost as James Greenwood suffered suspected anterior cruciate ligament damage.

The 27-year-old second-rower had only been on the pitch a couple of minutes off the bench when he went down with a serious-looking knee problem.

Greenwood was immediately forced off the pitch and was later seen departing the Mobile Rocket Stadium on crutches with coach Tim Sheens confirming that he will undergo a scan to assess the true extent of the damage.

If Greenwood is facing a lengthy ACL injury absence, Sheens hinted that he might look to bring in a loan player despite the fact Robbie Mulhern and Joel Tomkins are set to return for the Robins' next game against Catalans Dragons.

He said: "He has scans tomorrow [Monday] to determine it. The medical staff are pretty good, they know what it is."

On the loan market, Sheens added: "I wouldn't want to comment on that. We'll wait to see what the scan says, I wouldn’t jump the gun just yet. We'll enjoy the win and then assess it and go from there."

Danny McGuire's late try proved the difference between the sides as Hull KR picked up their third win of the season.

Sheens added: "No coach could fail to be happy with the effort today.

"We were already down in numbers and down in size so to stay with them, particularly in the second half, and come up with a winning try, it's a great result."
