In-form Hull stand-off Albert Kelly is likely to miss next weekend's clash with Salford due to personal reasons.

Hull have announced that Kelly has been allowed to return home to Australia on compassionate leave.

A statement from the Black and Whites said Kelly would return next weekend but was "unlikely" to face Salford.

The 26-year-old could stake a legitimate claim for being Super League's best player so far this season, scoring eight tries in his last five matches after crossing the city from Hull KR.
