Hull KR prop Mose Masoe has walked unassisted for the first time since sustaining a career-ending spinal injury in January.
Masoe, 30, was hurt in a tackle during a pre-season game against Wakefield.
He had several weeks of treatment at Pinderfields Hospital in Wakefield and initially walked with a frame.
In a video posted on social media, Masoe paid tribute to the hospital as he walked across his kitchen while his daughter pulled the frame in front.
“Still a long way to go but forever grateful for what I have,” Masoe said in the post.
An online fundraising page, set up to support Masoe and his family, has so far raised more than £100,000.
