Hull Kingston Rovers have received a major injury boost after it was confirmed Robbie Mulhern has not suffered a season-ending ACL injury.
The forward, who has been one of the Robins’ star performers this season, had scans on an injury picked up in the club’s Challenge Cup defeat to Wigan.
Head coach Tim Sheens stated following the game that the former Leeds forward would be out for the rest of the season.
However, results have confirmed a medial ligament injury, which will see him miss six to eight weeks, rather than the remainder of the season.
More positive news tonight! Prop @RobbieMulhern has had scans today which have confirmed he hasn’t suffered an ACL injury. He’s suffered a Grade 2 medial ligament injury and is facing 6-8 weeks on the sidelines. We wish him the best with his recovery. #ComeOnRovers pic.twitter.com/OEo1OqW0Qk

Meanwhile, the club has received further good news after Danny Tickle was issued a Grade A penalty notice after being sent-off against the Warriors.
Tickle was sent-off for his part in an incident that saw Wigan’s John Bateman sin-binned, but has not received further punishment.
