Loose forward Jazz Tevaga has today joined the Vodafone Warriors’ casualty list after suffering a knee injury during a training session in Tamworth on Friday.
He will be side-lined indefinitely with scans and further assessment needed to establish the full extent of the injury.
His setback came after senior prop Leeson Ah Mau tore his pectoral on Friday. It was confirmed today that the 30-year-old will have surgery in Sydney this week, ruling him out for four months.
The injuries to Ah Mau and Tevaga mean four of the club’s middle forwards are now out of action with props Bunty Afoa and Jackson Frei back in Auckland recovering from ACL surgery. Centre-winger Taane Milne has also just had an ACL operation.
