Head coach Gareth Lewis said: "It was a nasty one and it is not good for someone who has had such a great career.

"Matt is a bit of a talisman. His experience in the game is invaluable and he will be sadly missed. Our thoughts are with Chall.”

Challinor is in his second spell with the Titans, originally featuring from 2008-10 during the club’s Championship days.

A long spell at Doncaster Knights followed before his return to Clifton Lane in 2021, since when he has become a prominent and important member of the team. He has played more than 100 games for the club.

The lock will be out for the rest of the season as Titans try to chase down Leeds Tykes at the top of National Two North.
