Hull KR have delivered an update on their player, Mose Masoe, after he underwent surgery following a severe spinal injury.

Masoe suffered the injury in the early stages of the Robins’ pre-season clash with Wakefield yesterday and the club confirmed he’d undergone surgery.

And in an additional statement published this afternoon, the Robins say Mose is awake, alert and continuing to show signs of improvement.

The statement adds: “Mose has an overwhelmingly positive mindset and would like to thank everyone for their concern and well wishes.

“He would also like to extend special thanks to staff at Leeds General Infirmary for their unbelievable care.

“The club will continue to provide further updates as soon as they can, and in the meantime would ask for privacy for Mose and his family at such a difficult time.

“If anyone would like to offer a kind donation to support Mose and his family, please do so via the official Hull Kingston Rovers donation page.

“The club wishes to thank the Rugby League Benevolent Fund for flying Mose’s family over to be with him.”
