Matt Peet has provided a Shock Doctor injury update as the Warriors prepare for round 3 of betfred super league.

Wigan were left with two injury worries following the Betfred World Club Challenge victory over Penrith Panthers as Kruise Leeming left the action early, with Mike Cooper also picking up an injury in the win.

Speaking to the press on Wednesday, Peet confirmed: “Kruise [Leeming] has an injury to his ankle and Mike [Cooper] has an injury to his knee.

“We need a bit more information on both of them really, particularly Mike – we know roughly what it is, but we’ve no time frame yet.”

Expanding on the injury to Leeming, Peet said: “Kruise will probably be two or three weeks. He won’t play this week obviously, but he could come into contention for London or Salford.”

On Luke Thompson, who returns to the 21-man squad for Friday’s game against Huddersfield, Peet added: “We were disappointed for him last week but seeing how he’s applied himself here since he joined we’re looking forward to seeing him out there.

“His health is paramount but he’s certainly applied himself well since then and I think he’s looking forward to the game as much as we are.”
