Wigan's preparations for Saturday's Carnegie Challenge Cup Semi-Final against Leeds are well underway and coach Shaun Wane met the media to look ahead to the game.

Wane was asked about the injuries, starting with Josh Charnley who missed the Wakefield trip following a calf injury he sustained on England duty,

"I will know more about that at the end of the week, he won't train today. It was a bad calf injury, I hope we get him back, his form was fantastic.

"Jeff Lima is in contention to play, 90%, Paul Prescott might train today.

"It is a bit of a short turnaround for us this week, Leeds have had two more days and I won't have everyone training today which is a shame, we only have two full days of training for today and tomorrow, we have to just make the best of it. I am not sure what my team will be just yet."

On other longer term injuries, Wane was asked about Pat Richards,

"He is still about six weeks still, it was a pretty big operation he had, Pat has been driving himself in rehab which may have set him back another week."

And on Stu Fielden,

"He should be training next week on the field with us and he is another body, we will consider him once he is fit and played a few games in the 20's. I won't rush him after all this time, if it's 2 or 4 weeks I will wait to get the nod off our physio Becky."

Wane confirmed there were no fresh injuries from the win on Sunday at Wakefield.
