St Helens coach Royce Simmons confirms a further three players injured for Friday’s match against Catalan.
Simmons said: “We’re monitoring him (Wellens) as he goes. He has an Achilles problem and we had a scan on him last week that said that there was no major damage.
“But it’s still a little bit swollen and inflamed. When he tried to run and push off he couldn’t. We will probably go and get a more detailed scan and have a look at that.
In addition to Wellens’ injury, Simmons confirmed that the hard ground had not been kind to his players’ ankles during the summer months.
“Grounds are pretty hard. We have to have a look at certain footwear and that sort of stuff. We had a lot of Achilles problems this week which is probably from the hard ground.”
