VIDEO: Tomkins backs Tierney to shine

Injured fullback Sam Tomkins has backed Lewis Tierney to shine in his absence.

Tomkins’ second debut at the Warriors has been put on hold due to an ankle injury, with the England international still on track for a return in Easter.

However, the 26-year-old has been working with youngster Tierney, who Shaun Wane has confirmed will step-in for Tomkins during his rehabilitation, and Tomkins is confident he will produce the goods.

“I’ve done quite a lot of one-to-one work with Lewis,” he said.

“His natural ability you can’t teach.”
