Wakefield spirits lifted after Newton escapes serious injury
Tuesday 02 February 2010
Wakefield have been relieved to hear that their new signing Terry Newton does not face a long spell on the sidelines with the injury he suffered at Harlequins on Saturday.
The former Great Britain hooker lasted just a few minutes of the victory at The Stoop before damaging a biceps. A scan yesterday indicated that he is only likely to miss one game.
Newton's team-mate Richard Moore and Quins' Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook face an RFL disciplinary hearing this evening after being sent off for fighting.
Oldham do not know where they will play their first home game of the season, the Northern Rail Cup tie against Rochdale Hornets, on Sunday. Their ground-sharing arrangement with Oldham Athletic at Boundary Park finished last season and the club is in talks with Oldham Council to try to find a new home. Their former assistant coach, Mark Cass, is starting a one-year ban for betting on matches involving Oldham. Cass was dismissed last July when the matter first came to light.
The York coach, James Ratcliffe, has apologised to supporters after being suspended for two months for racially abusing a spectator after an amateur match.
