Double injury blow for Saints

The hopes of St Helens getting their season back on track have taken a knock with injuries to two of their players.

After three successive defeats, the news that Jordan Turner and Kyle Amor will be spending extensive time in the medical room will hardly help to lift spirits.

Centre Turner is facing a two-month lay-off after x-rays revealed he broke a bone in his foot in the first half of Saturday's 32-12 Challenge Cup fifth-round loss at Leeds.

Coach Nathan Brown said: "Jordan played the latter part of the first half and all the second half with a broken foot."

Saints are still waiting to discover the full extent of the knee injury sustained by prop Amor, who also left the ground on crutches.

After dropping from top to third in Super League after losing both Easter fixtures, they will next host winless London Broncos at Langtree Park on Thursday.
