Leeds Rhinos injury update

With the Rhinos not in action this weekend, we thought it was a good opportunity to recap the current injury list for supporters and give an update when we hope to be able to see some of our stars back on the field. 

Jack Walker 

Jack had an operation on his foot seven weeks ago and this week was able to return to the training ground after being on crutches since then. He is still in a protective boot for around a month but will begin to build up his work in the gym in the coming weeks. The surgeon was happy with the results of the operation and we hope to see Jack back on the field in 2022. 

Harry Newman

Harry is progressing well from his double fracture suffered last September. He could potentially start contact in training in three weeks and is on track for a provisional return to playing in June.

Rob Lui

Rob is eleven weeks into his rehabilitation after suffering a quad injury in pre-season. The 31-year-old hopes to be available for selection by the end of the month. 

Luke Gale

Good news for the skipper as it is now five weeks after suffering the broken bone in his thumb. He is set to return to action against Wakefield in the next round of Betfred Super League action. 

Cameron Smith

Cameron suffered a hamstring tendon injury three weeks ago and will be sidelined for at least another five weeks. He is making good progress and should be fully recovered after a period of rehabilitation. 

Tom Holroyd

The 20-year-old prop is now eight weeks after suffering a tibial plateau fracture in his leg in training. He will be out for 12 weeks in total so is therefore entering the final stages of his return and could be available by the end of the month if he continues to progress well. 

Alex Sutcliffe 

Alex missed Sunday’s game at Huddersfield after suffering a knee injury at Hull KR in the previous round. The injury is being monitored and no timescale as yet has been put on his return. 

Callum McLelland

The young half back had surgery with a specialist in London to resolve a long standing groin injury. He has returned to training this week and will continue his rehab over the coming weeks when he will be re-assessed about his potential to return to action, hopefully in the near future. 

Jarrod O’Connor

Jarrod suffered an injury below his eye in Sunday’s dramatic defeat to Huddersfield however he has been assessed this week and cleared to continue to training and play. 

Kyle Eastmond

Kyle had a grade one hamstring tear last week which kept him out of Sunday’s game at Huddersfield. He should be available for selection for next week’s game against Wakefield. 


Zane Tetevano and Richie Myler are both training and fit and will complete their four and two game bans respectively with next week’s game against Wakefield.
