Darrell Goulding faces wait for Airlie Bird challenge

Darrell Goulding will have to wait to find out if he is fit enough to take on Hull FC on Friday night.

Goulding was stretchered off the field during Friday’s victory against Castleford after a collision with Nick Youngquest.

However the Wigan-born centre says he should be OK for the match despite being knocked out cold.

He said: “The physio said I wasn’t breathing properly and I had the mask on. But once I found out there was nothing wrong with my neck, I was relieved.

“They did the tests and there’s no real damage, nothing a visit to the dentist won’t sort out. I was just gutted that I had to be stretchered off.”

Goulding has been ordered by the Warriors medical staff to take two days off and rest, but the 24-year old is still unsure if he will play in Friday night’s game. However he says he will certainly be back to take on Warrington on Saturday, August 11.

He said: “I’ll start running on Wednesday and then I’ll have to take a head test, so I’ll have to see. I’d like to play against Hull, but either way I’ll definitely be back to face Warrington the week after.”
