Rams signing Walton undergoes operation

Dewsbury Rams close-season signing Jason Walton has undergone the minor operation he needed on his knee and is now six weeks away from a return to action.
The experienced centre or second row required a knee reconstruction at previous club Featherstone, and, having recovered from that, has had surgery on a cartilage problem.
Coach Lee Greenwood (pictured) revealed that he is likely to start his comeback with either Hull KR reserves or Coventry Bears, the Rams’ two partner clubs.
Greenwood said: “It’s good for Jason because there was a little bit of unknown about it all with him being out a long time, but now he has a date to return to play to work towards.
“He’ll be a big boost to us to get him in when we are six or seven games in.
““Once he did his ACL he left Featherstone and didn’t have a club.
“He was just working, but then he signed for us and he’s gone into training while still being none the wiser when he could return to play, but he has that now.
“He had his knee operation on Monday and that went fine, which will settle his head a little, and his ACL is as strong as it can be.”
Five Rams squad members were set to play for Hull KR’s reserves on Saturday as part of the link between the clubs.
