Solomona out for five months


Warrington are expecting to be without David Solomona for the first four or five months of the season after his broken leg in Australia turned out to be even worse than first feared.

Solomona suffered the injury in an accident at Wolves' training camp in Sydney and it was later discovered he had also dislocated his ankle and damaged ligaments. "It was a pretty innocuous sort of collision, one that he's probably done a thousand times," said their coach, Tony Smith.
