O’Loughlin injury doubt for Wigan

Wigan Warriors captain Sean O’Loughlin is a doubt for Friday’s home clash with the Catalan Dragons.

The forward suffered the hamstring injury during Sunday’s 28-22 win away at Castleford.

Chris Tuson and Dom Crosby both suffered knocks in the same match but are expected to shake them off and be fit for the game.

Head coach Shaun Wane admits the side could be down to the bare-bones: “I’ll assess Lockers in our final training session.

“But he couldn’t train today and he doesn’t miss many sessions. I may have to make some changes.”

With Lee Mossop, Paul Prescott, Epalahame Lauaki, Harrison Hansen, Anthony Gelling and Darrell Goulding all out the squad is having the rely on the youngsters to step up.

Wane continued: I’m not sure what I’m going to do if Lockers doesn’t play. When I wrote down what was happening if we get more injuries… we’re doing it tough. But nothing will change in terms of preparation and attitude.

“Whether it’s Rhodri Lloyd or Greg Burke or my first choice, nothing changes in terms of what I expect.”
