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.
