Wakefield hooker or half-back Kyle Wood will miss the start of the new Super League season after undergoing surgery for a detached retina following a freak training ground accident.

The 23-year-old former Doncaster, Sheffield and Huddersfield player, who was an ever-present during his first season with the Wildcats in 2012, suffered the injury during a training session.

"He got a stray finger in his eye," explained Wakefield coach Richard Agar. "It's a blow because Woody made a lot of impact last year and he's been going great in pre-season.

"He's had surgery and will be out for two to three months, maybe even longer."
