Wigan Warriors suffer huge blow as star out for long period

Wigan Warriors head coach Matt Peet fuming over a Super League disciplinary decision

Wigan Warriors have suffered a huge blow as the full extent of Jai Field’s injury has been revealed.

Field limped off against Leigh Leopards at the end of the game.

It looked like a hamstring injury which caused him problems in 2021 and has dealt him a huge blow.

Field will be out for 8-10 weeks Matt Peet confirmed today in his press conference.

He said: “Jai Field is 8-10 weeks and Cade Cust will be checked every week. It’s a challenge certainly but one we look forward to. The fact Jai doesn’t need an operation is a bonus.”

It seems Cust is a week to week basis and of course it is good news that Field doesn’t require surgery.

Liam Marshall also missed the game against Leigh through a foot problem.

Meanwhile, St Helens star Alex Walmsley evened out the blows as he was forced off early in the Champions’ win over Wakefield Trinity yesterday with a hamstring injury of his own.

This hamstring curse has struck the other huge Good Friday derby as well with Tex Hoy leaving the field with a hamstring problem for Hull FC today after a 34-6 defeat to Warrington Wolves.

Meanwhile Ash Golding also suffered a hamstring injury agains Salford meaning Huddersfield Giants will be without him as they take on Leeds Rhinos.
