Wigan captain Sean O’Loughlin could be out for up to a month with an eye injury.

The 37-year-old was taken to hospital after being caught in the eye by the failing arm of Hakim Miloudi in the dying embers of Wigan’s 32-10 win over Toronto last Thursday.

Warriors coach Adrian Lam commented: “There was a fair bit of bleeding behind the eye and that can be a dangerous one.

“He’s starting to get some vision back in it now. He could be out for one to four weeks really. We’ll just wait and see with that one really.”

Wigan welcome Hull FC to the DW Stadium on Sunday afternoon, 3pm kick-off.
