ENGLAND international Jermaine McGillvary scored Huddersfield’s match-winning try against Wakefield despite suffering a torn quad.
The Giants winger sustained the muscle tear early in last Friday’s Super League match but stayed on before sealing the 24-16 victory nine minutes from time.
‘I went for a scan last night and it’s a grade two quad tear,’ McGillvary (pictured, top left) said. ‘I should be back within three to six weeks.’ McGillvary admits he probably made the injury worse by not coming off. ‘It wouldn’t have helped,’ he added.
‘I did it about ten minutes in. It was pretty painful but there was no one on the bench and I thought I could still do a job.’
McGillvary is confident he will be fit for the mid-season international with Samoa in May.
The 28-year-old is in the elite performance squad chosen by England coach Wayne Bennett ahead of October’s World Cup.
