Promising Vodafone Warriors halfback Ronald Volkman is set to have season-ending surgery.
The 20-year-old will be operated on this Friday after ongoing issues with a shoulder injury.
“Ronald has had some minor shoulder instability episodes over his career, the most recent being late in the game against Wests Tigers,” said Vodafone Warriors head of performance Balin Cupples.
“For his age and at this stage of his NRL career we need to act on these to give him the best long-term outcomes.”
The two-game NRL rookie will miss the Vodafone Warriors’ last games of the season but will be able to complete the majority of preseason training ahead of the 2023 campaign.
He made his debut against the Penrith Panthers and his second in the homecoming series game against the Tigers.
