Kirk Yeaman bides time in bid to end Hull FC injury nightmare
KIRK Yeaman won't rush his return to full Hull FC training as he bids to make sure there are no injury excuses in 2013.
The 29-year-old endured a frustrating 2012, hampered by injury for the most part as he often played in pain and with injections.
Two operations also limited the centre's number of games and prevented him from ever reaching full fitness as he battled against injury.
Following an ankle operation at the end of last season, Yeaman is now healthy again and determined to make his mark in his testimonial season.

But he won't come back too soon and is eager to make sure he's in perfect condition first.
"I want to get my ankle fully fit and make sure it's 100 per cent before I return fully because I don't want any excuses next season," Yeaman told the Mail.
"I want to hit the ground running when I get back and have a really big year, so it is important my ankle is stronger than ever.
"I've not been out running with the boys yet but I've done everything else and it's been hard work. I'm a couple of weeks away from being back in full training, but I can't wait for that.
"When I come back I'm going to make sure I'm in the best condition for the start of a big year for me and the club."
