Forward Dean Hadley also left the field on Sunday with a dislocated shoulder. The club confirmed he will undergo further scans and see a consultant later this week.

Albert Vete is pushing to feature against Warrington at the Halliwell Jones Stadium this Friday. He has been suffering from a groin issue.

Meanwhile, Frankie Halton continues to miss out due to a ruptured AC joint. The Ireland international is expected to return early August.

Matty Storton is still on the road to recovery after dislocating his toe early in the loss to Toulouse. Storton will look to push for selection again in the coming weeks once the inflammation around the injury has reduced.

Both Jordan Abdull and Brad Takairangi are now back on the field and recovering well. The pair continue their rehabilitations with the club from a quad tear and a hamstring tear.

Kane Linnett also returned to first-team training for the first time last week, seven weeks after his bicep reconstruction surgery. The Scotland international could become available towards the end of the season.
