Pryce set to see specialist

Hull FC half-back Leon Pryce is set to see a specialist today (Monday) to assess an ongoing knee injury.

Pryce was forced from the field in Friday’s last-gasp defeat to Wigan Warriors.

The injury, which has troubled the 34-year-old for a number of years now, has become an increasing nuisance recently, and it has forced Hull FC to seek action.

“I don’t think it will be anything long-term, just a little clean out,” said Pryce.

“It’s been sore for a long time but I’ve been able to manage it. But it’s now got to a point where it is unmanageable, so I’m going to see the specialist. It’s nothing major, it might even be fine, but we’ll see.

“I hurt my knee a few years ago when I was playing for Catalans Dragons and I had some meniscus taken out of my knee. If I’m honest with you it’s never been great ever since, but it’s one of those things that, if you speak to other players about, they’ll say the same thing.”

Pryce went on to admit the injury could keep him out of action for two to three weeks, although he won’t be sure until after his consultancy.
