Injury Report: Kosi making comeback in New South Wales Cup

Winger Edward Kosi ends a seven-week stint on the sideline when he makes his comeback with the One New Zealand Warriors’ New South Wales Cup side on Saturday.

Kosi has been out with a medial femoral condyle fracture he suffered in the round 10 loss to Penrith on May 6.

He makes his return in the Warriors’ 17th-round NSW Cup encounter with the St George Illawarra Dragons at Go Media Stadium Mt Smart on Saturday (12.00pm kick-off).

Kosi started the season impressively, locking down a spot on the wing for the first 10 rounds and scoring five tries in the first six games.

Also off the injury list is utility Dylan Walker who was yesterday named on the bench for the One New Zealand Warriors’ NRL clash against St George Illawarra on Friday night.

Middle forward Jazz Tevaga (calf) and standoff Te Maire Martin (fibula) are continuing to make progress.

Head of performance Balin Cupples said Tevaga is building his running loads back on grass and will move into skills integration in the coming weeks.

He said Martin is in the early running phase as he recovers from his broken fibula. He has started early progressions of full weight bearing running on the field.

NRL rookies Demitric Sifakula and Ali Leiataua have both had injury setbacks.

Sifakula is recovering from a moderate grade knee injury (posterior cruciate ligament) suffered in the opening minutes of the New South Wales Cup team’s clash against the Rabbitohs on June 3.

Leiataua’s superb first-grade debut was marred by a hamstring injury late in the club’s outstanding 36-14 victory over the Raiders on June 9.

Cupples said Leiataua had suffered a high-grade proximal hamstring strain which would rule him out for an extended period.  

Fullback Taine Tuaupiki is also out this week after a head knock in Saturday’s NSW Cup loss to Newtown.
