Hull KR hooker Matt Parcell could miss the rest of the season with a shoulder injury which may require surgery.

The 26-year-old Australian joined Rovers for the remainder of the season last month, and has since scored two tries in three games.

Parcell injured his shoulder against Leeds Rhinos - from whom he is currently on loan - and may miss up to four months in recovery.

"Matt has had initial scans," head physiotherapist Dan Ramsden said.

"He will meet with our shoulder specialist tomorrow [Wednesday] to establish the most appropriate treatment plan moving forward, this could involve a period of rehabilitation or potentially surgery.

"Return to play following surgery would be approximately four months."
