THE KNIGHTS’ horror off-season continues with news premiership-winning recruit Rory Kostjasyn will likely miss the opening six weeks of the season.
Kostjasyn has re-joined the squad but will require surgery following a bizarre throat injury suffered at training two weeks.
“We’re just waiting for the swelling to settle down and that’s why we’ve kept him away,” Physical performance manager Tony Ayoub told Knights TV.
“At the moment they can’t touch it simply because it’s so swollen.
“If it can settle down then he can have that surgery sooner rather than later.”
“His leadership skills and his calmness around training are so valuable.”
