WAKEFIELD Trinity Wildcats have suffered an injury blow with the news that skipper Glenn Morrison will be out of action for six weeks.
The Australian forward injured his hand in the first half of the defeat to Hull FC on Sunday and despite playing with a pain-killing injection in the second half, a specialist has confirmed that the injury will need surgical repair.
Morrison has fractured his little finger and has sustained tendon damage to his left hand that will be operated on tomorrow, Wednesday.
A disappointed Morrison said: “I did the damage in the first half and I didn’t realise it was so bad, I was gutted when I found out I needed an operation.
“With the Challenge Cup fixtures coming up, I will hopefully only miss three or four games and will be back fighting fit before we know it.”
