Warrington Wolves skipper Adrian Morley requires bicep operation
2:15pm Tuesday 19th February 2013 in Wolves news
WOLVES skipper Adrian Morley faces up to three months on the sidelines with a bicep tear.
The 35-year-old is due to have surgery this week to fix the damage in his left arm, which was sustained in the opening exchanges of Friday's 24-16 victory over Catalan Dragons.
Wolves' captain had been hoping for an injury-free 2013 after his previous two seasons had been blighted by eye, neck and arm injuries, which had kept him out of action for weeks at a time.
Wolves boss Tony Smith said: "Moz has torn a bit of his bicep and will need a repair, so we will be losing him for the next couple of months.
"Hopefully it will be closer to the two than three, but he will be going for surgery today (Tuesday) or tomorrow.
"He was a bit unlucky there.
"It was an impact injury and he has torn it because he hit the wrong part at the wrong time during a tackle.
"It can happen to anybody and you can see it as bad luck or you could see it as just part of the game.
"I’m sure he is feeling a little bit low, but if you’ve been around a while you know these things can happen and test you.
"But he will be fine and will lead us off the field like he always does as well as getting ready to get back on the pitch."
With Ben Harrison currently sidelined after hernia surgery and Ben Westwood facing disciplinary charges with the RFL today, Wolves could be without three of their starting pack for the trip to Hull FC on Saturday.
