Injury-hit Warrington will be without three of their close-season signings for Sunday?s engage Super League match at Huddersfield.
Worst hit is Great Britain winger Stuart Reardon, who will be sidelined for four to six weeks after breaking a bone in his hand in an accidental clash in training.
New club captain Paul Rauhihi (hamstring) and Reardon?s former Bradford team-mate Rob Parker (ankle) are also out after being injured in the 24-6 home defeat by Salford, while Chris Leikvoll (neck) and skipper Lee Briers (knee) are doubtful.
?The Salford game was an expensive fixture for us,? said coach Paul Cullen. ?Ahead of the kick-off we had a fully fit squad but by 4.30pm we knew we had been busted up badly and a number of the lads are carrying injuries.
?It?s not a case of good or bad luck, it?s simply professional rugby league and it?s our turn to go through the mill at the moment.?
