[Injury update] Papali'i facing up to six weeks on sideline
Second rower Isaiah Papali’i is expected to be out of action for up to six weeks with a knee injury.
The 19-year-old was assisted from the field after just seven minutes of last Saturday’s second-round NRL clash against Gold Coast at Mount Smart Stadium.
Papali’i has a medial ligament strain in his right knee which has ruled him out for four to six weeks.
No other injuries emerged from the NRL side’s 20-8 victory.
