Tommy Leuluai’s playing career at Wigan may be over.
After suffering a hamstring injury against Leigh at the start of August, Leuluai was expected to be on the sidelines for the long-term and now head coach Adrian Lam has confirmed that the veteran playmaker will be out for the rest of the season.
“It’s the emotional part of his injury at the moment – it’s always difficult knowing you won’t play for the rest of the season,” Lam said.
Whether Leuluai will head into a coaching role at the DW Stadium remains to be seen, but Lam says that that decision will not be taken by him.
“I think that process will happen over the next month – that’s his decision with the club.”
Leuluai has played over 300 games for the Warriors in two spells that have covered nine years in total and has often been touted as one of Wigan’s best ever overseas signings.
The Lancashire club are facing a rebuild ahead of the 2022 season with the likes of Oliver Gildart and Jackson Hastings leaving whilst Willie Isa, Sam Powell and Jake Bibby are set to sign new deals.
