Wigan Warriors prop Gil Dudson

Wigan prop Gil Dudson is set to be sidelined for up to six months after suffering a serious injury against Catalan Dragons in Saturday's win.

Welsh international Dudson, 21, was taken off on a stretcher on the hour with an ankle injury.

"It looks like Gil is done for the year with his ankle ligaments," coach Shaun Wane told BBC Radio Manchester.

"His form has been good, but hopefully we've got Ben Flower and Paul Prescott to come back from injury."
