Vodafone Warriors back rower Bayley Sironen is expected to miss the next three matches with a fractured eye socket.
Sironen picked up the injury in the club’s sold-out Mount Smart Stadium homecoming win over the Wests Tigers on July 3.
He’ll miss the away games against Parramatta tomorrow night and Canberra on July 23 as well as the second Homecoming Series match against Melbourne on July 29 before being available for round 21 encounter with South Sydney.
Ben Murdoch-Masila remains in a brace after having surgery following his elbow dislocation in the 14th-round loss to Cronulla Sutherland on June 12.
Tom Ale has been cleared to make his comeback with feeder club Redcliffe in the Hostplus Cup this weekend. The young middle forward has been sidelined following knee surgery last year.
And centre Viliami Vailea is set to be available next week after returning to full training this week. He broke his jaw in the 12th-round clash against Newcastle on May 28.
