Last week’s reserves fixture between Wigan Warriors and Leeds Rhinos was abandoned in worrying circumstances after injury.
The game kicked off at 5:30 at Robin Park in Wigan ahead of a meeting between the two in Super League.
However, the reserves game has been abandoned due to an injury for the Rhinos.
It was initially unclear who the player involved is but the nature of the injury was certainly worrying.
Luis Roberts, a recent signing for the Rhinos, scored just before the injury to make it 16-all.
Leeds and Wigan have both addressed the situations on social media.
“Due to the on field injury the referee and captains have agreed to abandon the game.”
Wigan meanwhile said:
“Due to an injury to a Leeds player, the referees and captains have agreed to abandon this evening’s Reserves fixture. We wish the player well.”
It was then confirmed that the player in question was Toby Warren and he thankfully had been sent to hospital on precautionary measures.
Toby Warren is on his way to recovery after his injury on Friday night, thank you to our excellent Academy medical team and the staff at @WiganWarriorsRL for taking care of Toby https://t.co/tfKksY18yo
