Taulima Tautai: Wakefield prop sidelined by thumb injury

Wakefield Trinity Wildcats prop Taulima Tautai has been ruled out for up to two months after having surgery on a broken and dislocated thumb.

The 25-year-old has played twice for the Wildcats since joining from NRL side Parramatta in May.

Before joining Richard Agar's side the Australian had been close to agreeing a deal with local rivals Castleford.

His injury is a further blow to Wakefield, who have lost their last four Super League fixtures.
