Wakefield duo ruled out for rest of season

Drew Darbyshire

Wakefield pair Bill Tupou and Chris Annakin will not play again this season due to injuries.

Tupou suffered an injury to his pectoral muscle in Trinity’s 24-16 defeat to Wigan on Sunday afternoon.

The Tonga international has struggled with injuries this season, being limited to just 15 appearances in all competitions.

Prop Annakin has picked up a groin strain and he will not play any further part in Wakefield’s fight for survival. Annakin and Tupou were both subbed in the first half against the Warriors and didn’t return.

Annakin is off-contract at the end of the year.

Wakefield face Warrington and London in the final two games of the season.
