Sean O’Loughlin taken to hospital with eye injury

Wigan captain Sean O’Loughlin was taken to hospital after suffering an eye injury in their win over Toronto.

The Warriors defeated the Wolfpack 32-10 at the DW Stadium on Thursday night.

O’Loughlin was set to mark his 400th Super League appearance with a try but was struck in the face by Toronto utility Hakim Miloudi six minutes from time. Miloudi was sin-binned for the incident.

Wigan coach Adrian Lam said: “He’s not good.

“It doesn’t look good, his eye. He’s on his way to hospital. He’s walking but he can’t see out of it, so it’s a concern.”

Toronto coach Brian McDermott hopes Miloudi will not face any further disciplinary action from the incident which saw him yellow carded.

He said: “I thought it was a harsh yellow card.

“He was defending his try-line and poked him in the eye but it was a fingernail. Hopefully nothing will come of it.”
