Warrington Wolves head coach Tony Smith has told playmaker Richie Myler to be optimistic after he 'tweaked' his knee on his comeback against Castleford.

The England international was making his return from injury against the Tigers at the Wish Communications Stadium on Sunday when he was carried off late on the contest.

The tweak occurred in the same knee that has kept Myler out of the side since Wolves' win against Wigan in June, leading many to fear for his availability for the remainder of the season.

Optimistic

However, rather than pre-judge and speculate about whether Myler needs another stint on the sidelines Smith wants the 23-year-old to stay calm and positive.

"He tweaked it and felt his knee wasn't fantastic," Smith told the Warrington Guardian. "But like we're telling him, be optimistic until you find out otherwise.

"He felt a twinge but it might settle down. It might just be a part of the healing process - sometimes that happens. We'll be checking him out over the next day or two."
