    Casualty Ward: Double dose of good news for Warriors

    Tue 14 Aug 2018, 01:01 PM

    The Warriors have received a double boost with Leivaha Pulu set to be cleared for Sunday's clash with Canterbury and fellow second-rower Tohu Harris on target to return from injury against Penrith next week.

    Pulu lasted 10 minutes off the bench in last Friday's 20-4 win over Newcastle but the recurrence of a foot injury isn't as bad as first feared. Harris, meanwhile, has resumed training after missing seven matches with a left knee injury.

    "Leivaha has come through pretty well. He wasn't out on the field today [at training] but the plan is to get him out on the field on Thursday," coach Steve Kearney said. "Tohu was out doing some rehab running today and so we're hopeful Leivaha will be good to go this week but unlikely Tohu will be."

    Meanwhile, Penrith will be without their Origin series-winning five-eighth James Maloney until the first week of the finals after a set of scans revealed serious knee ligament damage.

    The 32-year-old has a grade two medial ligament tear from the win over the Gold Coast, and will now miss the three remaining club rounds against the Knights, the Warriors and Storm.

    Roosters prop Jared Waerea-Haregreaves is set to miss up to a month after suffering broken ribs in the Roosters' round 22 win over South Sydney.

    Cronulla back-rower Wade Graham underwent two sets of scans on Monday on his right knee. He strained medial ligaments in the win over Melbourne but is only expected to miss just the one week.

    It was also good news for Rabbitohs fullback Alex Johnston, who should be available for the Broncos this weekend after scans on his hamstring injury.

    Storm veteran Ryan Hoffman suffered a hamstring and may not play again as he's retiring at season's end.

    Canberra skipper Jarrod Croker, who dislocated his kneecap in round 17 to end his season, said he will be back in time for a full pre-season with the Raiders.

    There is also good news for the Raiders concerning winger Michael Oldfield who said he is an outside chance of playing again before the end of the season despite suffering a serious medial ligament injury.

    Casualty Ward: Injuries wreak havoc on finals contenders

    Mon 10 Sep 2018, 08:20 AM

    The Dragons paid a price for Sunday's impressive victory over the Broncoswith a couple of significant injuries from that game.

    Star five-eighth Gareth Widdop dislocated his shoulder for the second time in four weeks and is rated no chance of being fit for this week's semi-final against South Sydney by coach Paul McGregor.

    St George Illawarra lock Jack de Belin aggravated an ankle injury in the second half and is touch and go to be fit this week while prop James Graham was concussed early in the match.

    Sydney Roosters prop Siosiua Taukeiaho is battling an ankle injury as the Roosters begin preparations for a preliminary final in two week's time.

    With fellow prop Dylan Napa already out suspended, the Roosters will be hoping Taukeiaho is able to take part in the match.

    In other injury news, South Sydney No.7 Adam Reynolds expects to play this weekend despite suffering a shoulder injury in his side's loss to Melbourne on Friday night.

    "Just copped a whack, the shoulder is a bit sore there but I got through the second half alright," Reynolds said.

    "It just felt like something happened in there ... I'm not too sure. The doctor said it was alright to go back out there."

    Penrith five-eighth James Maloney is expected to play this weekend despite suffering a neck injury in his side's win over the Warriors.

    The season is over for Sharks back-rower Wade Graham after he suffered an ACL injury against the Roosters.
