Campese ahead of schedule in recovery

Hull KR captain Terry Campese should be fit for the beginning of next season after the club revealed he is recovering well from the serious knee injury he suffered in June.

Campese left the field during the loss to Castleford earlier this season, with the veteran Australian needing surgery to reconstruct his knee ligaments.

But Robins boss Chris Chester said that the KR skipper is ahead of schedule: “We’re looking at another three or four months,” boss Chris Chester told BBC Radio Humberside.

“But he’s ahead of schedule and working very hard with the medical staff.”

Chester added: “Everything is going to plan, he’s getting stronger and will be fine for next season. We will also try to get him a friendly before it starts.

“We’re a better team when he is on the field and we will wrap him up in cotton wool until his first game.”
