Wigan Warriors star Liam Farrell reveals potentially bitter blow following incredible St Helens win

Super League fans were treated to a classic last night with Wigan Warriors running out 30-10 winners over St Helens.

In what many people predict will be the Grand Final, Wigan outlined their massive improvement under Matt Peet in such a short space of time with a convincing victory over their bitter rivals.

Incredible defence, sublime skill and brilliant enthusiasm was part and parcel of the Warriors’ win and even when Liam Farrell went off injured Peet’s men regrouped and continued their defensive onslaught against the reigning champions.

Unfortunately, Farrell’s injury does not look too good with the Wigan enforcer speaking to Sky Sports after the game following his man of the match performance.

To win the individual accolade having only spent 53 minutes on the field is testament to Farrell’s impact on this Wigan side, but there was potentially bad news for Peet with the forward revealing he will be going for scans over the weekend to determine the injury and timeframe to his knee.

“It doesn’t feel too good at the moment I’ll be honest,” Farrell admitted to Sky Sports.

“I’ll get some scans over the weekend and see how it goes.”

To be without Farrell would be a major blow for the Warriors and potentially for England with the Wigan man almost a shoo-in to be selected by head coach Shaun Wane for the World Cup at the end of the year.

Cade Cust also seemed in a lot of pain having dislocated his finger, though it isn’t expected to keep the halfback out, whilst Brad Singleton received a bloody blow to the head which left his face and shirt soaked.

Meanwhile, Saints were already without Tommy Makinson before the game even kicked off due to swelling around the knee and it appears as though theere may be some more injury problems with Konrad Hurrell and Josh Simm clutching their arms.
