Saints Head of Football David Rath provided an update on Sunday.
“It’s really disappointing to have Jack out for an extended period of time, but it’s important for him to get the treatment he needs to set him up for the second half of the season,”
“Jack’s a pro on and off the field and will no doubt attack his rehab professionally, which will hopefully see him back playing as soon as possible.” Rath said.
