Te Maire Martin’s lengthy stint on the sideline is almost over.
The 27-year-old playmaker has been forced to sit out most of the season after breaking the fibula in his left leg just after halftime in the One New Zealand Warriors’ sixth-round encounter with Newcastle on April 9.
While it was hoped Martin would return from his surgery sooner his recovery has seen him miss the club’s 14 games.
However, it’s now anticipated he’ll be available again in two weeks after progressing to team skills sessions this week.
While Martin might be available again by round 26, experienced centre Brayden Wiliame (calf) and 2023 rookie Ali Leiataua (hamstring) are expected to return to play later in the season.
Fullback Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad and New South Wales Cup utility back Ben Farr are both following NRL concussion protocols this week after receiving head knocks last weekend.
On the positive side both Jazz Tevaga (calf) and Edward Kosi (knee) made successful comebacks from injury layoffs last week.
