Hull Kingston Rovers are set for a double injury boost ahead of the weekend clash against Wigan Warriors, with key forwards Mick Weyman and Kevin Larroyer both set to return from injury.
Both players have yet to feature in a single minute of Super League action in 2015; Weyman suffered a knock in the build-up to their opening match of the season against Leeds, whilst French international Larroyer picked up an injury in the club’s pre-season friendly against Warrington Wolves.
But coach Chris Chester said that both players are in contention to play against the Warriors – a game which presents Rovers with their third opportunity to post their first win of Super League XX.
“Mick is responding to treatment,” Chester told the Hull Daily Mail.
“He’s had another injection in the last few days and we are quite hopeful he will be able to play.”
“Kevin trained all last week with the rest of the players,” Chester added.
“He will take part in the contact sessions today and tomorrow, but we need to make sure Kevin’s vision is okay before making a decision on whether he is fit to play against Wigan or not.”
