Hull KR ’s Danny Addy is on the comeback trail from his long-term injury after stepping up his recovery.
The versatile back-rower sustained a complex ACL injury in the pre-season derby victory over Hull FC , effectively ruling him out of the entire 2018 Super League campaign before it had begun.
Almost six months on, and finally Addy is running again.
Updating his Instagram followers with his progress, the former Bradford Bulls star couldn’t hide his delight.
“Yesterday was a good day 1st time running in 6 months,” Addy wrote on his official Instagram account.
Addy will not feature for the club in 2018 and is already under contract for next season. However, Rovers expect another long-term absentee, George Lawler, to be in contention to feature before the end of the year.
Lawler has been out for over three months with a broken leg but is slowly working his way towards full fitness. KR will not rush the process but hope the Hull-born second-rower will be available to come into the squad within the final three months of the season.
