Foot op for Yeaman
Hull FC and England centre Kirk Yeaman has undergone surgery on his injured foot.
Yeaman and the club have decided to take action now after he was left facing at least a fortnight on the sidelines following an arm injury suffered in Friday’s Stobart Super League win at St Helens.
The Black and Whites do not yet know when the 28-year-old will return, but coach Peter Gentle is glad to have sorted the matter out.
“We felt it was an opportune time to get Kirk in for his operation as he has been struggling with a minor problem with his foot,” he said.
“He had surgery on Saturday and we’ll know more shortly about how long his rehabilitation period is expected to be."
Yeaman joins hooker Aaron Heremaia, still to make his debut for Hull, and Martin Aspinwall on the sidelines.
