Jamie Jones-Buchanan: Leeds Rhinos prop faces nine months out
Leeds Rhinos coach Brian McDermott has confirmed that prop Jamie Jones-Buchanan will be out for nine months following knee surgery.
The 33-year-old was carried off on a stretcher in the Challenge Cup semi-final win over St Helens last month.
Meanwhile, hooker Paul Aiton has played his last game for the club.
The Catalans Dragons-bound hooker suffered a broken arm in the win over Warrington last week and has been ruled out for 16 weeks.
