Vince Mellars (R): Requires an eye operation
Wakefield Wildcats have been hit with the news that Australian centre Vince Mellars requires an operation on his detached retina.
Mellars suffered the eye injury in last weekend's 34-10 defeat to the high-flying Catalan Dragons in Perpignan.
The 28-year-old was coach Richard Agar's first signing for the 2012 season after spending two years in north Wales with the Crusaders, where he was top try scorer in 2010.
He has scored three tries in 18 appearances for Trinity and is likely to miss the rest of the Super League season.
Wakefield have won six of their 19 league matches this season and are nine points behind the eighth-placed Bradford Bulls.
