Terry Campese is set to see a specialist today to learn the extent of a hamstring injury picked up at the weekend.
The Australian halfback limped out of Hull Kingston Rovers’ defeat to Huddersfield at the weekend, less than an hour into his return from a nine-month knee injury.
Following his meeting today, he will also have a scan on Wednesday, after which KR will have a timescale for his latest spell on the sidelines.
The 32-year-old was an influential figure for the Rovers last year before his long-term injury ended his season in June. It resulted in KR dropping into the Middle 8s, although they did make the Challenge Cup final in his absence.
But Campese has been missed greatly during his spell in the treatment room, especially when halfback partner Albert Kelly was also forced to spend time out through injury.
Hull KR are bottom of Super League and are the only team in the competition yet to win a game this season. They host Salford Red Devils on Sunday, who are fifth in the table following their impressive victory over Castleford at the weekend.
