Hull KR captain Terry Campese will be missing for four weeks due to a hamstring injury he suffered in Sunday’s defeat to Huddersfield.
The 31 year old was making his return to the side after a lengthy spell on the sidelines with a knee injury but was forced off in the 42nd minute with the injury.
This means that the skipper will miss the busy Easter period with games against Salford, Hull FC, Wigan and Leeds, all in the next month.
Interim coach James Webster has said it is unfortunate news but is glad it is for a shorter spell than the previous injury.
In a statement on the Hull KR website, Webster said: “He’ll be doing everything he can to get back out there as quickly as possible but we’ll definitely be without him over the Easter period and maybe one or two matches after that as well.
“We need to concentrate on the players we do have available and find a way of getting the best out of them over the coming weeks, starting on Sunday.”
The Robins face the Salford Red Devils at the KC Lightstream Stadium on Sunday at 3pm.
