Wigan Warriors vs Catalans Dragons: Sam Tomkins absent again as Super League sides set for crunch TV game

SAM TOMKINS will once again miss Catalans Dragons’ fixture as the French side go up against Wigan Warriors on Thursday night.

Tomkins has yet to play a game in the 2023 Super League season after undergoing knee surgery back in January following the Rugby League World Cup.

The Dragons have endured a difficult period in terms of injury with Mitchell Pearce, Fouad Yaha and Tyrone May just some of those that have missed the opening few games in Super League.
