The GIANTS are providing their full support to forward Bobby Hill, who has been diagnosed with testicular cancer. 

22-year-old Hill will undergo surgery next week and will be unavailable indefinitely as he recovers. 

Medical assessment following his recovery period will determine if any further treatment is required. 

GIANTS General Manager of Football Jason McCartney said: 
“Bobby and his family have our full support, as always, as they go through this period. 

“His health and wellbeing is our absolute priority and he’ll have the best medical care as he undergoes surgery on Tuesday and beyond. 

“There’ll be a period of time for him to recover before further medical assessment to understand if any additional steps are required. 

“Bobby is in good spirits and knows he has the support and love of the entire GIANTS family.” 

The club will make no further comment at this time and asks media to respect the Hill family’s privacy. 
The GIANTS have the bye round next week, with players and staff on leave until Friday, June 3.
