Trinity can confirm that @BenJonesbishop will be out of action for a lengthy period, having been diagnosed with a medical condition.

We wish Ben well in his recovery and are looking forward to seeing him back on the pitch in the summer!

Sad to hear of another illness of a good rugby league player

I hope he recovers, he's an underrated player. What's the illness?

Agreed, not perhaps the superstar his early Leeds career suggested but at Trinity, he's been a 20 try a season stalwart. I'm not sure but did he not suffer a serious condition whilst at Leeds hence the trademark headgear?

I donā€™t think the club are allowed to reveal confidential medical information. This would have to come from the individual concerned.

He fractured his skull very early in his career, could be a factor I suppose.

Was playing for London against Wigan up at the DW (London won that game as well)
BJB played the last part of the first half with a dent in his head that wasn't discovered until half time when he felt it after feeling a bit dizzy (iirc)

I believe he also suffered from a blood clot after returning to Leeds ?
In a debate about why the CC final isnt in HD.
