Lees out for the season after abdominal surgery

Posted by

St Helens forward Matty Lees has been ruled out for the rest of the season after having abdominal surgery.

He picked up a serious abdominal injury during his sides win over Leeds Rhinos the week before the Challenge Cup Final, and has since had to have surgery.

St Helens head physio Nathan Mill said: “Matty perforated his bowel during the victory over Leeds Rhinos which resulted in him undergoing emergency abdominal surgery at Leeds General Infirmary.

“The surgery was a success, but Matty will sit out the remainder of the current season and has a long road to recovery.

“The nature of the injury and its rarity and complexity means it will be a matter of taking it stage by stage in regard to his rehabilitation process. Our medical team here at St Helens will judge his progression to correctly determine when that means he will return to play.

“The good news for Matty and everyone involved is he is currently stable at home and improving gradually.”
