Hull KR centre Thomas Minns has been ruled out for three months after suffering a foot injury in training. The 24-year-old only re-joined the Robins on a short-term deal in May after originally being released by the club last year after being handed a 16-month ban for testing positive for cocaine.
Minns’ ban had been scheduled to end on July 14, but his return to action has now been delayed as he has suffered a foot injury in training and has to undergo surgery to correct the problem. KR physio Trent Bowden told the club’s website: “Thomas suffered an injury on his foot in training which required surgery. He’s likely to be out for three months. “Thomas has been training quite well upon his return to the team and the injury is really unfortunate timing for him.”
It remains to be seen whether or not Minns will be offered an extension to his KR contract, which is due to expire at the end of the year, but the former Leeds Rhinos youngster has vowed he will return from his latest setback stronger than ever. “I’ve got so much to offer,” Minns posted on social media. “I will keep a positive attitude and keep moving in the right direction until I get where I need to be.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
