Hull KR coach Tim Sheens says they will not take any risks with Adam Quinlan and rush him back ahead of schedule. Quinlan was voted player of the year last season but has not featured since September after picking up a knee injury against Halifax, and he has been sorely missed.

The full-back is said to be making great progress with his recovery but Sheens says they will not rush him back and the original return date still stands. “Quinlan has been running now for a little while, but again we have a timeframe of June-ish,” Sheens said.
“He’s not too far away but he keeps ticking the boxes and moving forward on it. We can’t afford a back to back like Ben Currie at Warrington, who has had almost two years out.
“We’ve got a good majority of our players back now but there’s still no Quinlan, no (Lee) Jewitt, no (Nick) Scruton, no Ryan Lannon – there’s still an element of players unavailable. The key players in the spine, other than Quinlan, is starting to come together now.”
