SAINTS prop Luke Thompson has suffered a blow after leaving the field 15 minutes into their win over Hull FC.

Coach Justin Holbrook has just explained that it is a syndesmosis injury - affecting the ligaments on the high ankle.

He will be sidelined for a matter of a few weeks, but more news will follow.

Holbrook said: "I don't think it will be good. A syndesmosis on his ankle - we are not too sure on the timeframe yet."
