JACK Hughes has had further surgery on the injury that has kept him out of the entire season so far.

Wire head coach Steve Price confirmed the news after last night’s 38-4 win at Hull FC, saying his co-captain is still “a way off” returning to action.

Hughes had double hernia surgery after returning from the post-season Great Britain tour and was initially expected to return in “the early part of the season.”

“Jack is still a way off. He went under the knife again last week with his groin,” Price said.

“He’s doing all he can to get back around the boys. Hopefully its not too far down the track.”

Ben Currie came off during the later stages of Thursday’s win at the KCOM Stadium for a head injury assessment.

Price says the second rower could have re-entered the fray if needed but it was decided he would not be risked.

The match proved to be Lee Radford’s final game in charge of the Black and Whites, with club owner Adam Pearson announcing they had parted company with their head coach immediately after the game.

Price expressed great sympathy for Radford, calling him “a thorough gentleman.”

“You don’t like to see that on anyone,” he said.

“I’ve got a huge amount of respect for Lee as a coach and I’ve found him to be a thorough gentleman.

“He’s been great for Super League and to win two Challenge Cups. I feel for him.”
