Wakefield Trinity captain Danny Kirmond is set to miss the rest of the season after undergoing knee surgery.
The 32-year-old picked up the injury in Sunday’s win over Widnes and had an operation on Wednesday.
Coach Chris Chester told BBC Radio Leeds: “Initially we thought it was just a repair but we’re looking at more like a three-month timescale now.
“He’s going to be a massive loss for us and he was very unfortunate with how he got injured. It’s disappointing.”
