Wakefield captain Danny Kirmond cleared of facial injury

Wakefield Trinity Wildcats captain Danny Kirmond has been cleared of any substantial injury to his face, after he left the field during the Wildcats’ heavy defeat to Castleford last weekend.

Kirmond was forced off with fears he had fractured his eye socket during the game, but returned to finish the contest, seemingly allaying any fears of a nasty injury. However, he told League Express after the game that he was to undergo scans to ensure there was no damage.

And thankfully for Wildcats fans, coach Richard Agar confirmed that their talismanic skipper will be ready to go for this weekend’s clash against Warrington, having been cleared of any damage.

“They suspected he may have broken his eye socket, but it settled down very quickly once we got him off the field and on the bench. We were OK to get him back on there; he’s got a big shiner but thankfully that’s all he’s got,” Agar told the media.

“The X-ray has cleared him of any damage, so he’s fine and he’s good to go.”
