Wolves given Riley boost
Tuesday 11 August 2009
Warrington have dispelled any theory that they might claw back Kevin Penny from Widnes for their Challenge Cup final against Huddersfield.
The Wolves could have brought Penny back from his loan spell, as a replacement for Chris Riley, who had to be carried off for X-rays on a neck injury on Saturday. However, Riley, himself a wing replacement for Brian Carney, who has a broken arm, has been passed fit to return to training and could even play in the Super League rematch with Wigan on Friday. That would mean Penny, who has been rebuilding his confidence at Widnes, being left there for the rest of the season.
Terry Newton has played his last game for Bradford after fracturing his cheekbone at Harlequins on Saturday. The Test hooker has agreed a two-year contract at Wakefield from next season. The Bulls have only the slimmest of chances of reaching the play-offs this season, but have continued their rebuilding by signing the Cronulla full-back, Brett Kearney, and are expected to add the Fijian World Cup player, Daryl Millard, to their squad for 2010.
Wigan's Phil Bailey is another who will not play again this year, after damaging his Achilles tendon in the cup semi-final defeat by Warrington.
One of Australia's highest-profile players, Greg Inglis, has been suspended indefinitely by the Melbourne Storm, after an alleged assault on his girlfriend that left her with a black eye.
