James Roby will be out of action for approximately four weeks after he is set to undergo groin surgery this week, Head Coach Justin Holbrook has confirmed.
Roby has been struggling in recent weeks with the injury and Holbrook confirmed in his post match press conference that his captain will undergo surgery to hopefully correct the matter this week.
“Robes has been struggling with it, carrying a niggling injury for a while. He’ll get some minor surgery this week so he’ll probably miss four weeks,” Holbrook said.
“Aaron Smith is a good player and will be back in next week.”
If Holbrook’s prediction is correct, Roby is likely to miss games against Huddersfield, Leeds, Warrington and Hull FC before Wigan visit the Totally Wicked Stadium on Friday 12th July.
