Major update on Warrington Wolves star George Williams

George Williams

Warrington Wolves will be sweating over the fitness of George Williams as they prepare to name their 21-man squad for their clash against Castleford Tigers.

George Williams missed the game against Hull FC on Friday night much to the surprise of many and there were fears it could be because of a serious injury.

However, Williams has confirmed that it is a minor knock as he spoke to Sky Sports giving him a good chance of returning to feature against the Tigers.

Speaking to Brian Carney, Williams said: “Yeah, Brian, it’s just a little ankle injury which is disappointing, I’ve just picked up a niggle.”

So, Sam Burgess looks set to be able to at least have a chance of naming George Williams in his squad for the game against Castleford Tigers.

Hull FC looking for their own George Williams like boost

This came as Brian Carney and Jon Wilkin discussed the injury absentees for Hull FC against the Warrington Wolves without George Williams with Leon Hayes featuring instead.

The Black and Whites have their own George Williams like blow with former Castleford Tigers star Jake Trueman still injured with Morgan Smith and Tex Hoy taking it in turns playing in the halves instead.

Carney revealed that Trueman faces another 10 weeks out: “That last name at the bottom, Jake Trueman is out for 10 more weeks. But they might need to wait until he’s fit because he might be the key.”

Wilkin added: “Tex Hoy starts in the halves, and for me, when you put Jake Truman into the mix, then things become exciting for home.

“But it’s quite simple, if you concede a lot of penalties, and you’re unable to break a team down, by making line breaks and trying to score an opportunity, you’re going to lose rugby games. And it’s going to be a tough, tough time here for Tony today.

“It may be a tough few weeks, but what they’ve got to do is make sure it doesn’t get away from them this season. It was such a disappointment. They’ve got a bumper crowd, their biggest ever crowd to open a season.

“But it’s a club that has struggled in recent years to establish themselves anywhere near the top of the table.

“And if you contrast that, the juxtaposition with Hull KR, the other side of the town and the fierce rivalry that they’ve got, well they’ve gone the other way haven’t they? So, they’ll be acutely aware, all the fans will be aware of that.”
