ALEX Walmsley will definitely be missing this week after suffering a damaged retina during Saturday's semi-final victory.

The England prop caught a stray finger from a hand off in Saturday's game and is going to see a specialist this afternoon.

He will miss the home clash with Wakefield and likely to be out for the following week's trip to Warrington.

Coach Justin Holbrook said: "It is not good and he has definitely damaged his retina and had a scan after the game.

"He won’t play this week, and unlikely next week.

"His initial scan suggested a couple of weeks – and as long as we get the same information confirmed this afternoon then that is okay."

Meanwhile Lachlan Coote and Morgan Knowles remain sidelined, but Zeb Taia returns after a six week absence.

Holbrook said: "Coote is still a week or two away.

"He should be right but he goes back to the specialist next Tuesday and we will get a better indication.

"Morgan Knowles has fractured a couple of ribs and rib cartilage.

"He is a tough player as they all are, but hopefully those blokes are all only a week or two away.

"I am definitely not going to play them before they are right."
