More injury worries for Wigan

Wigan remain the only unbeaten team in Super League after they were held to a 16-all draw by Huddersfield.

But it was yet another costly afternoon for the Warriors, who lost Sean O’Loughlin (calf) and Jack Wells (ankle) to injury.

Back-rower Liam Farrell sat out the match with a calf strain, to join an ever-growing injury list that includes Sam Tomkins, Joe Burgess, Dominic Manfredi and Michael McIlorum, amongst others.

The two latest injuries came early on in the match, and in the end coach Shaun Wane was happy with a point.

He said: “It was a flat game, we did our best to get out of that. Coupled with the loss of Jack Wells and Lockers early on we’ll take the draw.

“Credit to them, they did well. They came with a game plan and they did it really well.”


  1. Here we go again.Whinging Wane.It is only a couple of weeks that he was bragging that injuries don’t bother him as he has a very big,strong squad to choose from injuries are not a problem.He draws a match,and the whinging starts again because of injuries Poor Wane.

  2. I don’t see any whingeing from Wane, just a statement that he lost 2 forwards early, leaving just 2 subs.

    My problem with Huddersfield being allowed to slow down the game, same as they always do with any quick playing team.

    Huddersfield: apart from 3 players, always boring to watch. No fans. No contribution to SL. Hope they go down this year.
