Sam Tomkins looks set to miss this week's Super League clash with London Broncos.

Wigan lost to Huddersfield last weekend without their star man and the Warriors look unlikely to have him back for the Broncos clash.

Coach Shaun Wane said: "Sam has a knock on his shoulder from the Warrington game and he will be struggling for this week as well.

"Sam pulled out on Friday and any team would miss his influence in the side.

"He got a knee off Adrian Morley at the end of the game against Warrington, we thought he may have broken his scapula at one point, it is just really bad muscle damage and bruising."

Wane also confirmed that Anthony Gelling could be out of action for six weeks after suffering a knee injury against Huddersfield.

"We have lost Anthony with medial knee ligaments which is not good, he will be out for six weeks or so," Wane added.
