Warrington Wolves

Burgess updates on Connor Wrench and Josh Drinkwater’s injuries



Head coach Sam Burgess has confirmed that both Josh Drinkwater and Connor Wrench are doubtful for Warrington Wolves’ upcoming trip to Hull KR. Wrench, a centre, was set to play against Castleford Tigers but withdrew after the final training session due to a groin niggle. Meanwhile, Drinkwater, a half-back, had a thigh issue before the match and played with heavy strapping on his upper left leg. He was eventually substituted during the second half.

Burgess cited the heavy pitches early in the season as a factor in his decision not to risk Wrench, who was withdrawn before the game. Both players will now be assessed ahead of the six-day turnaround before facing Hull KR.

While Burgess is uncertain about Drinkwater’s condition, he mentioned that it’s not severe, but they will monitor his recovery on Monday. Regarding Wrench, Burgess opted not to risk him due to his niggle, though he believes Wrench should be okay for the next game.

In summary, both players’ availability for the upcoming match hinges on their recovery from their respective injuries, with Drinkwater’s status being monitored closely due to the short turnaround. Burgess expressed gratitude to Drinkwater for his efforts despite carrying an injury into the previous game.
