Wakefield Trinity have been doing it tough in 2022 so far.
After incurring injuries to the likes of Jacob Miller, Corey Hall and Liam Hood, one of their star wingers also now faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
That man is Tom Lineham, whose move to Wakefield at the end of the 2021 season ended his long affiliation with the Warrington Wolves.
However, his injury is a serious one.
“I’ve not got an actual diagnosis yet,” Lineham told the Super League Show.
“I’ve had an MRI scan and there’s a grade three MCL tear and a partial ACL tear which isn’t good because it could be a nine month injury.
“We don’t know the extent of the damage yet but it’s a minimum of three months.”
Lineham was gutted to say the least, given that he has only just made the move to Trinity and wanted to impress all of those around him.
“It’s obviously disappointing, going into a new team and trying to impress, you want to do well.
“It’s my first long-term injury since my Hull days so it’s tough to take.”
