The 23-year-old former Doncaster, Sheffield and Huddersfield player, who was an ever-present during his first season with the Wildcats in 2012, suffered the injury during a training-ground accident.

"He got a stray finger in his eye," explained Wakefield coach Richard Agar. "It's a blow because Woody made a lot of impact last year and he's been going great in pre-season. He's had surgery and will be out for two to three months, maybe even longer."
