Hull KR's Blake Green and Shannon McDonnell will not play again
HULL KR stars Blake Green and Shannon McDonnell will not play for the club again due to injury.
Rovers had hoped both would recover from knee injuries to feature in the final weeks of the campaign.
However, coach Craig Sandercock admits that is now highly unlikely.
"Blake's injury is responding slower than we hoped," Sandercock told the Mail.

"He may possibly be ready for the London game next week but I doubt it. I also doubt if we will see Shannon play again this season.
"Shannon was always going to be a six to eight week injury but it is progressing slowly.
"He may return for the play-offs if we get there."
As perviously reported in the Mail, McDonnell looks set to turn down offers from the NRL to join Hull FC next season.
Green will join this weekend's opponents Wigan, with the clubs having agreed a fee in the region of £100,000.
Injuries also leave Sandercock without prop Joel Clinton and Scott Murrell, denying both emotional farewell appearances.
Clinton, who re-injured his hamstring last week in training, may also have played his last game.
It is hoped Murrell will play next weekend in London.
Jake Webster, Josh Hodgson, Graeme Horne and Liam Salter are all fit for Sunday.
