Warrington Wolves will be without Chris Sandow for two months as the influential half back recovers from a hamstring injury.
The 27 year-old tore his hamstring in the game against Wigan at the start of the month and was initially ruled out for four months, however Wolves head coach Tony Smith has revealed the injury is healing well:
“The first scan after two weeks is showing healing of the ligament, which is fantastic news. Had that not come back really positive, he would have had to have an operation and a four-month lay-off,” Smith said via Eurosport.
Super League’s Player of the Month for February and March will not now need surgery and will have a follow up scan in a month and Smith is confident the former Parramatta Eel is recovering well:
“The next big moment will be four weeks in when we get it scanned again and hopefully it shows more repair. We’re not sure how long it takes but it’s not going to be a four or five-week injury, it’s going to be an eight, nine, 10-week sort of injury if it goes well and the signs so far are that it’s going well.”
