McIlorum well on road to recovery at Wigan

Wigan hooker Michael McIlorum is well on the road to recovery, after being compelled to miss England‘s Test series against New Zealand with an arm injury.

The dummy half underwent an operation on a previously broken bone which had not healed properly, in order to make sure that he was fully fit for the 2016 campaign.

“I’ve still got to wait for a scan in a couple of weeks to make sure 100 per cent,” he told his club’s official website.

“I’ve started back weights and running again. It feels 100 per cent better – I should be good (for the start of the season), the physios are doing a great job and it looks like it’s healing well.

“Chris Brookes (club doctor) told me I couldn’t play on, because I wanted to get my arm done. He said I could play in the play-off games and the Grand Final.

“But I had a word with Steve McNamara (England Coach) and it was best for me to have it (the operation).”
