Vodafone Warriors backs Peta Hiku and Paul Turner both face an extended stint on the sideline after suffering shoulder injuries in last Sunday’s 20-14 sixth-round win over St George Illawarra.
Hiku, who was returning from a knee problem, was helped off the field after just five minutes after injuring his right shoulder.
Replacing Hiku, Turner played the rest of the match despite suffering a left shoulder injury.
Both will have further medial assessment this week but will be out indefinitely.
Adam Pompey, the third centre injured in the St George Illawarra encounter, is facing two to four weeks out with an ankle injury.
Second rower Eliesa Katoa picked up a toe injury when he turned out for feeder club Redcliffe against Wynnum Manly in the Intrust Super Cup. He’s expected to be out two to four weeks.
Hiku, Turner, Pompey and Katoa join centre Euan Aitken (ankle), halfback Chanel Harris-Tavita (halfback) and prop Addin Fonua-Blake (knee) on the club’s casualty list.
Aitken and Harris-Tavita are scheduled to be available to play again in round nine or 10 while Fonua-Blake is out indefinitely.
