Leeds Rhinos🦏 Coach David Furner Hopeful🤕 on Walker, Watkins & Dwyer Injuries

  |   Rugby

Leeds coach David Furner is hoping injuries sustained by Jack Walker, Kallum Watkins and Brad Dwyer in their win over Hull KR are not too serious.

The precious 28-24 victory came at a cost, with Walker suffering a hamstring problem, Dwyer taking a knock to the shoulder and captain Watkins hurting his knee.

"We've got a few injuries there and credit to the players," Furner said. "That was a tough 40 minutes there [in the second half] and we probably put ourselves in that position.

"With Kallum I don't think the injury is as bad - which is a good sign. Jack Walker I'm hoping it's not so bad but I think it's a hamstring.

"That hurt us in the end. We hung on. And I suppose that's what the Easter period is about."

Furner is adamant Leeds are moving in the right direction, despite only notching their fourth win of the 2019 season.

"We've always been moving in the right direction, I think," he said. "Things can take you out of that direction, whether it's injuries or inexperience.

"The squad we had there were confident we could win the game, we just made it a little bit hard for ourselves in the second half."
