Wigan Warriors have confirmed that England international centre Dan Sarginson is set to miss the rest of the season due to requiring surgery.
Sarginson has not played since going off during the win against Leeds back in July, but Wigan were hopeful that the centre would feature at least towards the latter part of the Super 8s.
However, coach Shaun Wane has confirmed he will need surgery on the problem which will end his season.
“It’s been a tricky situation with Dan,” Wane told the club’s official website.
“We really wanted to give him every chance to play again this year but after our medical staff and a couple of other medical experts who specialise in this area looked into it we agreed that this was the only real option.
“We’re gutted, as is Dan, it’s a bad time to lose a first team centre but we’ve no alternative but to keep working together as a team to make sure the loss does not affect us.”
