SHAUN Wane is enjoying one of the toughest weeks of his season despite facing another injury crisis.

The Warrirors welcome back Blake Green and Michael McIlorum to the squad to face Castleford tomorrow night but Sam Tomkins (knee), Lee Mossop (hip) and Chris Tuson (hamstring) are all new additions to the chronic injury list.

But Wane is treating the latest setbacks as another opportunity for what is left of his side to prove what they are made of, as well as for youngsters to gain Super League experience to aid their development.

“I see this as more of a mental challenge than anything else,” said Wane.

“It’s a test like Easter and it’s a test for all the staff to get all the stats and information we need on Castelford to beready.

“I like weeks like this where we have injuries and have to juggle things around – it excites me as another challenge.

“It is testing but really exciting for us as a club.”
