Warrington’s Grand Final hopes have been hit by the news star scrum-half Richie Myler could miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.

Myler suffered the injury against Castleford last weekend and Wolves coach Tony Smith is not sure whether he will be able to play again this season.

The 23-year-old has been told he does not need an operation but the injury could still rule him out for several weeks and Smith is hoping he can make a speedy recovery.

“It’s really down to how well he recuperates,” Smith said.  “Whether that’s a matter of two or three weeks we’re not sure or if it’s longer than that it will just be down to how he feels.

“It’s not serious enough to go and operate on so it’s one of those in between and when he feels good enough to return, that’s when he’ll return.”

It is the second time that Myler has damaged knee ligaments this season and team-mate Adrian Morley does not hold out too much hope of seeing him play again this season.

“Richie Myler had a recurrence of his knee problem last weekend, it doesn’t look good I think that’s his season gone,” he said.

The news will also come as a blow to England head coach Steve McNamara, who named Myler in the squads for last Autumn’s Tri-Nations series and the Exiles game earlier this year.
