If it was a clear cut season ending injury wouldn't they have had some info by now? Usually these things get announced pretty quickly.
Either it's not as serious as we feared or it's another potential Laumape situation where everyone hopes it's going to come right but they may have to bite the bullet and get the surgery in a few weeks when it doesn't come right.

Vodafone Warriors fullback Roger Tuivasa-Sheck faces more than six months on the sideline after scans today confirmed he had ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in Saturday night’s seventh-round NRL clash against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at Westpac Stadium in Wellington.
In just his seventh appearance for the club, the 22-year-old was forced off the field after only 16 minutes.
“Roger is absolutely shattered and so is everyone around the club,” said Vodafone Warriors head coach Andrew McFadden.
“We had huge expectations about what he would bring to us this season and he was so excited about the role he had to play. He had settled in well developing his combinations and timing but now this. It’s the cruel side of football – we’ve certainly had more than our share of bad luck.
“Roger will have surgery in about three weeks and faces a long recovery but we’ll make sure he has plenty of support and care around him.”
All good guys. Was pretty convinced we were never going to challenge for the premiership this year. Tui will continue to fire and develop and his combination with Shaun Johnson/Luke will grow, we'll make the 8 and then next year when Roger Tuivasa-Sheck comes back all rested it'll be like a brand new signing all over again.
Either that or this is the start of an even bigger slide than last year....flip a coin really.
Hey! At least we have a reason to keep Cappy on another year now, can't blame him for losing a superstar signing. Warriors forum rejoice!
