Squad players on road to recovery

Jason Hobson is set to return to first-team action by mid-March after progressing well with his rehabilitation.

The prop – who suffered a knee injury in the victory over Rotherham in November – is expected to be back to full fitness in an estimated six weeks.

Meanwhile, Ruki Tipuna will be back in full training in two weeks following a foot injury sustained in the defeat of Jersey.

Redford Pennycook suffered a shoulder injury during the B&I Cup win over Gala in December. The flanker is estimated to return to action in 3-4 weeks.

Sammy Speight underwent a shoulder operation following an injury sustained whilst representing Fiji in November. The winger is estimated to return by the end of March.

Long-term absentee Errie Claassens is working hard on his rehabilitation alongside the Club's medical and strength and conditioning staff. The utility back is being integrated into light training.
