Sam Tomkins will play no part in the play-offs or the Four Nations, having been ruled out for the remainder of the season due to a foot injury.
The England ace was X-rayed last Saturday at Salford Royal, while further CT and MRI scans have confirmed the severity of the injury. He will now have investigative surgery early this week.
In another blow for both Wigan, captain Sean O’Loughlin is also unlikely to play in the play-offs with a calf injury.
O’Loughlin pulled out of Wigan’s victory over Catalans on Friday, and Wigan have confirmed that he will now play no further part in their season.
“This season has thrown up bigger challenges with injuries than ever before, yet I’m proud to say we are still fighting fiercely and successfully as shown by the 12-man victory over Warrington last week and in Friday’s performance against Catalans to qualify for a home semi-final,” said Chairman Ian Lenagan.
“Currently, Wigan has only 20 players available from a first-team squad of 35 but there is a tremendous spirit and confidence amongst this Wigan group that thrives in adversity. That character and resilience, plus the ever-improving performances in defence – and growing effectiveness in attack – of our remaining first team and Academy players lays a great platform for the crucial next two weeks.
“Despite all of the challenges that the club have faced this year I, Shaun Wane, Kris Radlinski and the first team squad believe that we can defy the odds to make this an excellent season-end for Wigan.”
