The prop was forced off with a hamstring problem in the first half of the recent victory over Leeds Rhinos at Headingley.

On Byrne’s injury, Warriors head coach Matty Peet said: “It’s unlikely he’ll feature again this season.

“You’re looking at eight to 10 weeks. It’s not ideal, but we’ve known for a while now.

"It’s a shame for Liam and it’s a shame for us.

"You do expect players to miss out at this time of year and that’s why we talk about the full squad."
