Wigan have confirmed that back-rower Liam Farrell is set for a spell on the sidelines after suffering a pectoral muscle tear against the Sydney Roosters. 

The 28-year suffered the injury in the 50th minute at the DW Stadium and is set for up to four months out.

Warriors Head Coach Adrian Lam said: “Liam has unfortunately torn his pectoral muscle and will go under the knife in the next 24 hours to reattach it.

“It’s a blow, as Liam is a quality player and he is part of our leadership group, but injuries are part and parcel of a sport as tough as rugby league and his misfortune presents another member of our squad with an opportunity to contribute.”

He added: “We’ll support Liam throughout this process and get him on the road to recovery as soon as possible.”
