Tony Smith: Gives the latest on Wolves' injured players

Warrington Wolves coach Tony Smith has confirmed it will be a month at least before David Solomona and Richie Myler return to action.

Solomona is yet to play for Wolves this season after breaking his leg, dislocating his ankle and damaging ligaments in a training accident during the club's pre-season camp in Australia.

The 34-year-old is on the mend, although Smith believes the ex-Bradford Bull is still up to six weeks after from making a first-team return.

"For a while it was dark and gloomy for him and he couldn't see any light at the end of the tunnel but playing is starting to be reality to him again now and he's taken good care of himself."

Myler's strained abductor means he could remain on the sidelines for another month, a similar time period for Stefan Ratchford who has been out following shoulder surgery.

Centre Rhys Evans is out of action with a foot problem, but former Leeds Rhinos coach Smith is hopeful the Welsh youngster will be able to return 'shorty'.

Return

"Dave is doing well and I'd imagine he is five to six weeks away from a return," Smith told the Warrington Guardian.

"For a while it was dark and gloomy for him and he couldn't see any light at the end of the tunnel but playing is starting to be reality to him again now and he's taken good care of himself.

"Richie will probably be another three or four weeks and I'd suggest Stef will be back within a month.

"Rhys has had some issues with the bone in his foot that was injured last year.

"I'm told the bone has healed but some of the ligaments around the bone have been a bit aggravated with doing some hard work.

"It has set him back a bit but we're hopeful if he can overcome some of the soreness he will be able to return to playing shortly."
