St Helens Injury Update: Makinson Out Early Against London Broncos

St Helens Suffer Early Makinson Injury Blow in London Broncos Clash

In their Super League Round 14 away clash against London Broncos, St Helens have suffered an early injury setback with the loss of veteran winger Tommy Makinson. The 32-year-old, who is set to join Catalans Dragons at the end of the season, lasted just over a minute on the field before signaling the need to be substituted.

Makinson was forced to dive onto the turf at the Twickenham Stoop to catch a high bomb from Broncos player James Meadows. As he sprang back up, his left foot buckled under him in the subsequent tackle, leading to his premature withdrawal from the game. The injury occurred just 61 seconds into the match.

“St Helens have confirmed that Makinson has sustained a foot injury and is unlikely to return to the field. This comes as a significant blow for head coach Paul Wellens, who has already been dealing with a lengthy injury list, including the absences of key players such as Alex Walmsley, Matt Whitley, Morgan Knowles, Joe Batchelor, and captain Jonny Lomax.”

Despite the early setback, St Helens have managed to take the lead in the match, with Waqa Blake scoring the opening try. The score currently stands at 6-0 to the visitors.
