Hull FC winger Jason Crookes ruled out for four months

Hull FC winger Jason Crookes has been ruled out for at least four months with a shoulder injury that requires surgery.

The 23-year-old made 13 league appearances last season after his move from Bradford Bulls.

"It's a real shame for him because I know he was looking forward to the start of the [new] season," Hull boss Lee Radford told the club website. 

"It is very cruel but it is part and parcel of our game."
