Warrington Wolves prop Joe Philbin will miss the Challenge Cup final after being ruled out for 10 weeks with a thigh injury.

The club say Philbin, 29, has had successful surgery on his adductor after suffering the injury during the recent 16-8 win against Catalans Dragons.

Wolves will face Wigan Warriors at Wembley on Saturday, 8 June after thrashing Huddersfield 46-10 in the semi-final.

They will first play the same opposition in a home Super League match at the Halliwell Jones Stadium this Saturday.
