KR expecting Campese to be fit for start of season

Hull KR coach Chris Chester has revealed he’s hopeful star half-back Terry Campese will be fit to feature in their opening Super League match of next season.

The 31-year-old, who impressed during his first few months with the Robins, suffered a serious knee injury back in June, which ruled him out of both the remainder of their Super League campaign as well as their run to Wembley in the Challenge Cup.

But Chester has revealed a positive update to local radio, saying Campese is back in his native Australia getting the necessary treatment, and that hopes are high he can be fine for the start of the new season.

The Robins kick off their Super League campaign in 2016 against Castleford on February 7.

“He’s out in Australia at the moment and is getting some very good treatment,” Chester told BBC Radio Humberside.

“He’s ahead of schedule and we’re confident that he will be right for game one.”
