Hull Kingston Rovers forward Mose Masoe has undergone surgery after suffering a serious spinal injury.
The prop was injured in the club’s pre-season friendly with Wakefield and was operated on overnight at Leeds General Infirmary.
The Samoa international, 30, joined the Robins midway through 2017.
A Rovers statement said: “The club will provide further updates as soon as possible.”
Masoe suffered the injury in the third minute of the match and received several minutes of treatment.
