Greg Inglis will have to wait at least another week to make his Warrington and Super League debut.
Inglis, 34, is not in the Wolves’ 21-man squad for the weekend’s clash with Hull, and he is yet to make an appearance since arriving in the UK at the start of the year.
But coach Steve Price says there are no issues with the player’s fight to regain fitness.
He said: “He’s training with our squad, doing really well.
“All the players and coaching staff are really excited but he won’t be playing this weekend.
“There’s certainly not a problem. We’re very happy with his progression from where he’s come from.
“It’s small safety measures now, it’s about making sure that, when he does get out to play for Warrington, he stays on the park and he’s healthy for the season.
“He’s certainly not that far away. We have got to hold him back at times because he wants to do more.
“I don’t want to speculate (on his debut) but he’s doing everything he can.”
It’s now more than two years since Inglis last played a game of rugby league – a 34-18 win for South Sydney against St George-Illawarra on March 21, 2019.
Jake Mamo and youngster Connor Wrench have started in the two Super League games so far in Inglis’ absence, with Toby King the other first choice centre.
Warrington have back-to-back away games against Hull and Catalans, before three consecutive home games in Super League are broken up by a Challenge Cup quarter-final tie, also against Catalans, to be held at Headingley.
