IN-FORM Hull FC centre Jake Connor is 'likely' to miss rest of the season according to his club.

The England international - their only ever-present this term - suffered a high-grade hamstring tear in Friday’s loss against St Helens.

Hull also have doubts over props Chris Green and Mickey Paea for Sunday’s trip to Wakefield Trinity while and Albert Kelly is definitely out due to a concussion suffered against Saints.

Hull coach Lee Radford said: “I’ve said it all season, I’ve never known anything like it.

“We’ve got 12 or 13 players missing this week; it’s one of those seasons.

“But we’ll keep battling on and keep fighting until there are no more fights left.

“It is disappointing for Jake. He has been excellent this season but that is the way our season has gone so far.

“Hopefully we can get a few bodies back on the field over the next few weeks.”

Connor, 23, made a try-scoring debut for England in the win over New Zealand in Denver last month and hoped to face the Kiwis, too, in the three-game series at the end of the year.
