Leeds Rhinos confirm that hooker Paul Aiton will miss the next three months of the season.

Leeds Rhinos hooker Paul Aiton has been ruled out for the next three months of the season.

The 28-year-old Papa New Guinea international is due to undergo a course of prescribed medication to treat the medical condition that has seen him miss the past two weeks.

"I'm so enjoying being part of the Rhinos team and really disappointed I will be out for so long. But, I'll do all I have to and be back raring to go," Aiton told the club's official website.

Aiton joined Leeds from Wakefield Trinity Wildcats in the summer.
