Adam Walker facing lengthy injury absence

Hull KR forward Adam Walker is expected to be out of action for a "substantial length of time" after picking up an ankle injury on Friday.

Hull Kingston Rovers forward Adam Walker is expected to be sidelined for a "substantial length of time" after picking up an ankle injury over the weekend.

The Scot, 23, suffered the problem on Friday during Hull's 25-12 win at Warrington Wolves in Super League.

Coach Craig Sandercock now admits that Walker is likely to be ruled out of action for the foreseeable future.

"Unfortunately, he's suffered a pretty serious ankle injury," Sandercock is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News.

"We won't know exactly how long he'll be out until we get the scans back but the physio thinks it is pretty significant and that it will be substantial length of time."

Hull return to Super League action on Thursday when they host local rivals Hull FC.
