Tony Smith says George King is touch and go for Hull KR’s next game after taking a nasty knock to his hip in the win over Castleford Tigers.

The prop hobbled off in the first half in clear discomfort and did not reappear at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle.

Rovers went on to claim a dramatic 26-22 victory but are sweating over the fitness of a key front-rower ahead of Sunday’s trip to Wakefield Trinity.

“He took a bang on the hip,” said Smith. “I’m not sure, it’s a bit of a nasty one on his hip.

“We’ll see. It’s like a bleed on his hip. He’ll be touch and go for next week (Sunday) I reckon.

“It’s one of those nasty ones in the sweet spot and a bit more than a regular knock.

“You know that when George comes off because he’s a tough kid. Fingers crossed.

“We’ve got another couple of bumps and bruises but we’ll run our eye over them. I don’t think there’s any other drastic ones at this stage.”

Matt Parcell – one of KR’s standout performers on the night – is one of those players nursing a knock after being forced off in the closing stages.

But Smith expects him to play at Belle Vue this weekend.

“He clashed knees,” said Smith.

“It’s one of those where two or three minutes after you come off it’s alright again.”
