Matt Peet has provided an update on Liam Byrne’s injury ahead of Friday’s Super League final round clash with Leigh Leopards at Leigh Sports Village.
Liam Byrne, who left the field early in Wigan’s Round 25 win over Leeds Rhinos at Headingley Stadium, faces a long spell on the sidelines.
Speaking on the injury, Peet said: “It’s unlikely Liam will feature again this season as we’re probably looking at an 8-10 week injury.
“It’s not ideal and it’s a shame for both Liam and the Club. Injuries are what you expect around this time of the season so that’s why we speak about having a full squad ready to go.”
Liam Farrell missed the victory over Castleford Tigers, and on the absence, Peet said: “It was just a precaution, Liam had a bit of a tight calf.”
The Warriors will continue to be without the injured Ethan Havard (hamstring), Willie Isa (Pectoral) and Mike Cooper (knee).
