Morley cleared to prop up Wolves' challenge
Wednesday 17 February 2010
Warrington's captain, Adrian Morley, was last night cleared to play in this Saturday's eagerly awaited Super League match with Wigan.
The Test prop was facing possible suspension for a late tackle on Brent Sherwin at Castleford last Saturday, but was found not guilty of the offence. Carvell was found guilty of illegal use of the forearm in the same game, but is likely to appeal against his one-match ban.
The Wolves' assistant coach, James Lowes, who believes that the incidents attracted more attention because they were seen live on Sky, said yesterday that Mike Cooper was likely to be called up for his first Super League game of the season against Wigan.
They could also move David Solomona, who is fit again after missing the Cas game, up to front row, or recall Lee Mitchell from his dual-registration loan at Leigh.
Wigan also have a reshuffle to finalise, thanks to Cameron Phelps' knee injury. Amos Roberts will move to full-back and they will either promote Darrell Goulding or recall Shaun Ainscough from his loan at Leigh.
Whoever plays, it will be in front of a guaranteed full house, with almost all the 13,000 tickets already sold. Both teams are unbeaten so far this season, although the loss of two Test props would have tilted the odds sharply in Wigan's direction.
The former Wales and Lions RU captain, Gareth Thomas, is being linked with a possible move to Crusaders.
Oldham have confirmed that they have found a new home, after fears that they would be forced to leave the town. The club, founder-members of the RFL 115 years ago, are to move in from next month with Oldham Borough FC, who play at White Bank Stadium in the Limeside area of the town.
Oldham have been homeless since their arrangement to ground-share at Boundary Park expired at the end of last season.
