Richie Myler set to return for Warrington Wolves

Warrington Wolves head coach Tony Smith has been handed a major injury boost, as scrum-half Richie Myler is set to return from injury to face Wakefield Trinity Wildcats this weekend.

Myler has missed the Wolves’ last six games with a shoulder injury, but has shrugged it off to be named in Smith’s 19-man squad to face the Wildcats. With both Stefan Ratchford and Chris Bridge settling into their partnership together of late in the halves, it throws up an interesting dilemma for Smith, with Bridge likely to be moved back out to the centres to accommodate Myler’s return.

Elsewhere, the Wolves have been robbed of the services of Trent Waterhouse, after he sustained a knee injury during last weekend’s victory over St Helens at Magic Weekend.

Wolves 19: 10 Roy Asotasi, 4 Ryan Atkins, 3 Chris Bridge, 17 Ben Currie, 22 Brad Dwyer, 19 Anthony England, 25 Ben Evans, 18 Rhys Evans, 15 Ben Harrison, 9 Micky Higham, 8 Chris Hill, 23 James Laithwaite, 5 Joel Monaghan, 14 Michael Monaghan, 7 Richie Myler, 29 Gene Ormsby, 6 Stefan Ratchford, 1 Matthew Russell, 12 Ben Westwood.
