Leeds Rhinos’ Injuries: Ash Handley & Tom Holroyd Hospitalized After Defeat

Leeds Rhinos Suffer Costly Defeat as Ash Handley and Tom Holroyd Head to Hospital (Rugby League Scores, Results)

In a disappointing turn of events for the Leeds Rhinos, two key players – Ash Handley and Tom Holroyd – have been sent to the hospital to assess the severity of their rugby league injuries following a defeat to the Warrington Wolves on Friday night.

Holroyd, the young forward, was forced to leave the field in the early stages of the match after sustaining a head knock, resulting in him failing the Head Injury Assessment (HIA) and being ruled out for the remainder of the contest. However, Holroyd’s woes continued as he reported feeling unwell after the HIA, prompting further medical evaluation.

The news is equally concerning for Rhinos’ top try-scorer, Ash Handley, who had to leave the field clutching his side following a tackle from England captain George Williams in the first half. Handley is suspected to have a cracked rib and will undergo additional scans to determine the extent of the injury, which could potentially sideline him for an extended period.

“They’ve both gone to hospital to get checked. Tom has been feeling unwell after failing the HIA and Ash has got a possible cracked rib so they’re both going to get checked out. I don’t know if that was a turning point, but it certainly didn’t help.”

When assessing his side’s overall performance, Smith admitted that the Rhinos “weren’t good enough for long enough in most parts of the game” and were unable to “defend our goal-line as well as we have in other games.” The loss of Handley and Holroyd due to injury certainly compounded the team’s struggles on the night.

As the Rhinos look to bounce back from this costly defeat, the focus will be on the recovery and rehabilitation of their injured stars. Fans of rugby league and the best rugby betting sites will eagerly await updates on the severity of Handley and Holroyd’s injuries and their potential return to the pitch.
