Leeds Rhinos’ star has been ruled out for three months on the sidelines in a bitter blow – Total Rugby League

LEEDS RHINOS star James Bentley is set to be out for three months with his concussion problem.

Bentley has not played since failing a head injury assessment during the Rhinos’ win at Castleford Tigers on March 28.

But it wasn’t the first time the Ireland international had suffered concussion – he suffered a similar injury at Huddersfield Giants last August which ended Bentley’s 2023 Super League season.

And ahead of Leeds’ 46-8 win over London Broncos on Friday night, Bentley confirmed to the Headingley crowd that he will not be back until the end of July.

Leeds head coach Rohan Smith previously said of Bentley: “His health will be number one in the short term, it’s been over six months since his last incident and that’s one of the time frames I’m looking at when assessing return to play’.
