Byline: IAN LAYBOURN Rugby League Reporter

CENTRE Anthony Gelling is set to return to the Warrington team as the club await the outcome of a police investigation.

The former Wigan player, who joined the Wolves in the winter on a two-year deal from Widnes, was suspended by the Super League club on February 12 after being arrested on suspicion of wounding with intent.

Gelling, 29, played in Warrington's opening two games of the season but has missed the last four while the club carried out their own investigation.

A statement from the club said: "Warrington Wolves can confirm that centre Anthony Gelling will be back available for selection this week, ahead of Round 7 of the Betfred Super League. The incident in question is now solely a police matter and the club will await updates on the investigation before considering any change in approach. The club and player will make no further comment at this time."

The Auckland-born Cook Islands international is set to go straight back into the Wolves team to play Hull at the KCOM Stadium on Friday night.

Meanwhile Huddersfield forward Joe Wardle was given a caution for using his knees in a tackle during his side's 12-10 win at St Helens.
