SAINTS prop Louie McCarthy Scarsbrook will be out for up to five weeks after scans revealed a fractured cheekbone.

Meanwhile Curtis Sironen sat out the game against Hull KR with a niggle as a precautionary measure.

McCarthy-Scarsbrook picked up the the injury against Toulouse.

Coach Kristian Woolf said: "He is going to be for fouyr or five weeks at this stage.

"He assures me that he is a very quick healer so we are hopeful of the shorter term.

"He is obviously a loss there with his enthusiasm and experience, even though he is getting a little bit older he still brings that leg speed when he comes on the field and makes a real impact for us.

"We will be without him for a couple of weeks - but Jake Wingfield did a great job and made a real impact. We only saw bits of what Jake can do.

"He too has a great skilset and footwork and an ability to work hard.

"I also thought Dan Norman - with limited time - made a good impact for us and I am comfortable with what we can do there going forward.

"Once Sione and Curtis are back in their right positions we will have more rotation through the middle with James Bell."

Woolf explained the niggle experienced by Sironen which prompted them to leave him out this week.

"Curtis copped a bit of niggle during the week and pulled up a bit sore after the Toulouse game. He trained earlier in the week but aggravated it.

"It was a smart decision to leave him out with there being a week off coming to make sure he is right for Leeds," Woolf said.
