Wolves without both Andersons in play-offs
Wednesday 06 August 2008
Warrington will go into the Super League play-offs without both of the Anderson brothers.
Already without Louis for a shoulder operation, the Wolves have now been told that Vinnie broke his arm in the victory over Leeds on Saturday and will also miss the rest of the season.
Elder brother Vinnie described it as "a nasty coincidence" and it is one that will keep the pair out of the World Cup, despite both being named in Tonga's preliminary squad yesterday. Three other British-based players – Hull's Willie Manu, Tevita Leo-Latu of Wakefield and Bradford's Tame Tupou – are also included. Six Super League players are in Samoa's initial squad, including the St Helens pair, Francis Meli and Willie Talau.
Saints' hooker or half-back, Scott Moore, who spent all of this season on loan to Castleford, is to do the same at Huddersfield next year. The St Helens chairman, Eamonn McManus, said that Moore's opportunities would be limited at Knowsley Road "but he is still very much in our plans for the future". Castleford are now expected to sign the Huddersfield hooker, Ryan Hudson.
Cup finalists Hull have agreed a new, three-year contract with their regular stand-off this season, Danny Washbrook. The 22-year-old, usually a loose forward, has taken on the role in the absence of Richard Horne, who has been given permission to play again after a five-month lay-off with a neck injury and is regarded as an outside possibility for Wembley.
