The Vodafone Warriors have had a one-step-forward, one-step-back week on the casualty front.
The list was reduced by one with hooker Wayde Egan back in business tonight but gained one back with Chanel Harris-Tavita picking up a wrist injury in last week’s loss to the Sydney Roosters.
However, Tavita-Harris isn’t likely to be a casualty for long and could miss just this week’s round and be available again for next Friday night’s away encounter Manly Warringah.
Also close to being in contention again after a long lay-off is hooker Nathaniel Roache.
Two of the four players who returned to New Zealand this week are on the injured list.
Prop Agnatius Paasi (shoulder) won’t be able to train fully for six weeks while rookie forward King Vuniyayawa has a season-ending hand injury.
