A SUPER League rugby player could lose an eye after he was attacked outside a nightclub.
Hull KR’s Sean Gleeson, 26, was punched in the face a number of times following a row with three men in Wigan in the early hours of Sunday.
He suffered serious injuries to his eye and eye socket and was taken to hospital.
Wigan-born Gleeson signed for Hull KR last year but has had a string of injury problems. He previously played for Salford City Reds, Wakefield Trinity Wildcats, Widnes Vikings and Wigan Warriors.
Detective Chief Inspector Howard Millington, from Greater Manchester Police, said: “A young man has been left with serious, potentially life changing, injuries as he could lose his eye.”
