Sam Powell

Wigan head coach Matt Peet has provided the latest on hooker Sam Powell following his injury sustained against Hull KR.

Powell, 30, left the field early during the club’s 46-4 victory over the Robins at the DW Stadium last Thursday.

He was replaced by youngster Brad O’Neill early in the game, which saw hat-tricks for both Bevan French and Liam Marshall. 

“Sam Powell has got an injury to his foot,” Peet told Love Rugby League. “We’re anticipating around a month. 

“He’s had his scans so he’s just waiting on a few specialist appointments for more direction on that.

“He’ll feature again this season, we anticipate. But it could be around a month.”

The club will also appeal O’Neill’s two match-ban, which he picked up during a reserves game against Wakefield. The decision will be heard on Tuesday.

The hooker came into contact with the referee and was given a Grade C charge.
