Wakefield Trinity are set to be without fullback Max Jowitt for the rest of the 2021 season following an injury sustained in the club’s loss to Castleford last week.
Jowitt was taken from the field with a shoulder problem and interim head coach Willie Poching did not have good news.
“It’s not good. “It’s quite possible it could be season-ending,” Poching said.
“His pain is quite significant at the moment.
“The physios are doing their best with him and trying to get him a game or two at the back end of the season if they can.
“He will be a loss but it does give an opportunity to someone else.”
Surgery could be a possibility for the 24-year-old, but Poching hopes that isn’t the case.
“If they can find out the issue with it and what’s going on and whether there’s more treatment needed, then we expect that will be the case,” he said.
“At the moment, it’s just about managing it but it’s whether he can get through a training session or a game.
“If it comes to it, that the risk is too great to throw him out for that game or two, then we won’t do it.”
