Vodafone Warriors centre Solomone Kata and second rower Leivaha Pulu both face stints on the side-line after being forced off the field with injuries in yesterday’s sixth-round 18-27 NRL loss to Brisbane at Mount Smart Stadium.

Pulu was out of the game after 23 minutes and was taken to hospital for scans on a foot injury. Further assessment is needed before the full extent of the injury is determined.

Kata was helped off the field with an ankle injury at the 73-minute mark. It’s expected he will be side-lined for up to four weeks.

Both players have appeared in each of the club’s first six matches of the season.
