Wakefield star requires surgery
Wakefield Trinity head coach Chris Chester will need to make do without injured centre Bill Tupou for around three months.
The Tonga international suffered a groin injury in the victory over Salford Red Devils last weekend.
After further assessment, Tupou has been ruled out of action for at least three months and requires surgery.
Chester said: "We got the worst possible news yesterday that he was going to need an operation.
"We're disappointed for Bill and we're going to have to try and find 300 metres from somewhere else now; it's a gap that's going to be hard to fill."
