WARRINGTON Wolves may be without Daryl Clark for Thursday night’s game against Castleford Tigers.

With the dummy-half and wife Leigh expecting their first child to be born any day now, head coach Steve Price says there is a chance Clark will miss out on facing his former club.

“It’s a possibility depending on when the baby comes along,” he said.

“He’s definitely keen to play – I know that – but it will all depend on the timing.”

Price expects to have largely the same group of players available to him for the game at the Totally Wicked Stadium, with seven of his players still sidelined for Covid-related reasons.

However, Ben Murdoch-Masila is available again after completing a two-match suspension and the Wire boss confirmed the Tongan will be in the 17 that faces the Tigers.

The coronavirus-related selection issues are not solely confined to The Wire, however.

This afternoon, Castleford released a brief statement declaring forward Jesse Sene-Lefao has been stood down from selection and training due to “Covid Track and Trace protocols.”

The Tigers say they will be conducting an internal investigation into the matter.

Both sides will name their 21-man squads for the game at lunchtime tomorrow.
