Warrington Wolves recall Rhys Williams from Salford City Reds

Warrington Guardian: Joel Monaghan has torn an abdominal muscle ahead of Wolves' trip to Hull KR Joel Monaghan has torn an abdominal muscle ahead of Wolves' trip to Hull KR

AN injury to Joel Monaghan has forced Warrington Wolves to recall winger Rhys Williams from his loan spell at Salford City Reds.

An abdominal tear suffered by Wolves’ Aussie top try scorer, who has scored braces in three of Warrington’s four matches this season, means that the 23-year-old Welshman has returned from the loan spell at Salford ahead of Wolves’ trip to Hull KR on Sunday, kick off 3pm.

Chris Bridge’s recovery from an operation to fix tendinitis in his knee is ahead of schedule, meaning that the 28-year-old centre will make his first appearance of the season for Wolves’ partner club Swinton Lions against Dewsbury on Sunday.

Lee Briers will still be unavailable for selection ahead of Warrington’s consecutive trip to Humberside, with the neck and shoulder injury that has kept him out of action for the last fortnight requiring further rehab before the stand off is ready to return to Super League action.

Adrian Morley’s operation to fix a bicep tear has gone smoothly, though it is still unlikely that the club captain will return to action any sooner than the two to three month estimate given by head of coaching and rugby Tony Smith two weeks ago.

Ben Harrison is still at least a couple of weeks from returning to first-team action after the forward underwent an operation to fix a double hernia earlier in the season.
