Leicester Lions new boy Simon Nielsen breaks his hand

Leicester Lions new boy Simon Nielsen will be out for up to eight weeks with a broken hand.

Nielsen was hurt during a promising debut meeting for the Lions in a challenge fixture away against Scunthorpe on Friday, 14 March.

Team boss Jason Attwood is searching for a replacement for the Danish rider, who joined Leicester in December.

Leicester are next in action on Sunday when they host Scunthorpe in another challenge meeting.
