Tomkins hits the gym as recovery from injury continues

It’s a sight all Wigan fans will be delighted to see.

Sam Tomkins might currently be out injured, but it hasn’t stopped him pumping some iron as he continues his own personal recovery from an ankle injury.

Following his return to the Warriors after a spell with New Zealand Warriors in the NRL, Tomkins has taken to Instagram to post a picture of himself working out in Wigan’s gym to show he isn’t taken his time on the sidelines lightly.

Tomkins is expected to be out until Easter due to an ankle injury that has caused him problems for some time and forced him out of the autumn international Test series with New Zealand.

A potential return date for the 26-year-old is the Good Friday showdown with fierce rivals St Helens, although on this evidence, Tomkins is determined to be to be back far sooner than that.
