Wakefield winger Ben Jones-Bishop has been ruled out of the start of the season with an undisclosed medical condition.

Jones-Bishop, 31, hasn’t been able to participate in pre-season training due to the issue.

The club’s head physio, Ryan Carmody, told the club’s official website: “Earlier on in pre-season we received the news that Bish had been diagnosed with a medical condition.

“Unfortunately it’s stopped him taking part in any sort of training and means he’s set for a fairly lengthy spell on the sidelines. He’s currently under investigation with the medical team and we hope to see Bish back in the Red, White and Blue during the summer.”

Jones-Bishop has scored 61 tries in 108 games for Trinity since arriving from Salford in 2016.
