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.
