Mark Applegarth provides huge update on Luke Gale injury

Luke Gale of Wakefield Trinity

As they prepared for the huge game against Wigan Warriors, Wakefield Trinity were struck by a huge blow as rumours and reports of an injury to former Leeds Rhinos star Luke Gale.

A former Man of Steel during his time at Castleford Tigers, Gale joined Keighley Cougars after a spell at Hull FC before being parachuted in at Belle Vue to save their season.

However, he would have to wait to make his Wakefield debut due to injury.

When he eventually appeared in the white, red and blue of Trinity he was a major success especially against Salford Red Devils guiding Trinity to a statement win and a huge boost in the relegation battle.

Gale appeared to be the missing piece in the club’s race for survival so when he was ruled out ahead of their clash with Wigan, it was seen as a huge blow especially with talk he could be out for the rest of the season.

Wakefield though were able to defeat Wigan without him and the club have also revealed that Gale hadn’t suffered a broken ankle.

After last night’s game Mark Applegarth confirmed that Gale’s scan on Thursday was positive.

“I don’t want to jump to conclusions but the scan is positive,” said Applegarth on BBC Radio Leeds as he provided a further update, “There’s no structural damage and he’s got a specialist appointment on Monday when we’ll get an estimate time frame for how long he’ll be out.

“I’m just really pleased that there isn’t any structural damage and that we should be able to get him back at some point this year all being well.”
