VIDEO: Warriors Captain on the Mend

Wigan Warriors captain Sean O'Loughlin was back in full training this week after getting the all-clear following a shoulder injury which kept him out of action for much of 2008.

"I went last Monday to see the specialist and have another scan to make sure the break is alright and all seems ok. I've got the all clear so I can get cracking now and carry on as normal" he said.

'Lockers' picked up the injury, a broken shoulder blade, in the game against Warrington in May but a brief run out at Hull KR in July ended in disaster as he explains.

"Coming back too early wasn't the right option, it felt good but when I played it wasn't quite right so it put me back which was a big disapopointment. Hopefully I can get a good start to the season now though, hit the ground running and stay injury-free.

"The break will be a benefit to me to do some good training, have a big off season, and to get stronger and fitter. Sometimes in rugby you don't get a break so this will give me a great chance."

"Last week we did a lot of testing but this week we've done the hardstuff. It's a good bonding time to get to know some of the young lads who will be in the squad next season. It's good to spend that bit of time together and get to know each other before the start of the season."

Ironically, Sean could make his comeback against Warrington on 28th December.

"I'll probably feature in that, I'm not sure what the team will be but having not played for so long it will be good to get a run out."
