Reports: Austin to miss Challenge Cup Final

Warrington star Blake Austin is set to miss his side’s Challenge Cup Final at Wembley, according to rugby league journalist John Davidson.

The 28-year-old picked up an ankle injury in the Wolves’ loss to Catalans on Saturday and will reportedly be out of action for four weeks.

This would mean he won’t be fit in time for the final, which takes place in less than three weeks time on August 24th, however the club themselves have yet to rule him out.

Warrington were quick to bring in back-up earlier this week, with the loan signing of Catalan halfback Matty Smith.

However, Smith also won’t be able to feature at Wembley as he is Cup-tied, having already appeared in the competition for the Dragons.
