Vodafone Warriors captain Roger Tuivasa-Sheck has been booked in for surgery on his injured left knee on Friday.

He was helped from the field 27 minutes into the club’s sudden-death week one NRL finals clash against Penrith at ANZ Stadium last Saturday.

He has been diagnosed with a medial ligament and meniscal injury.

His expected recovery time is yet to be determined.

Veteran hooker Issac Luke has agreed to take up a new one-year deal with the Warriors for next season with the club hoping to complete the signing in the next couple of days.

It's understood Luke has accepted a heavily reduced offer to remain in Auckland after talks to join Newcastle broke down following news he requires shoulder surgery which could keep him sidelined until March next year.

Played pretty well considering his shoulder was rooted.That sort of injury hampers the best of them even Cooper Cronk wasn't that great with only one arm.

i have been lead to believe that most countries remove the screws after healing is complete but for some reason, probably cost, that NZ doesnt. This probably shows why they do elsewhere.

I've often wondered if we got more injuries than other teams. Last year we had a decent run but prior to that we seemed cursed- there was like 4 or 5 years where we just couldn't get our spine on the field together.
This article doesn't really answer the question but it is interesting mt smart comes in 3rd for most injuries.
There's a few other interesting tidbits in there as well.

Suncorp Stadium revealed as NRL’s venue with highest injury risk




Brisbane’s Suncop Stadium has been revealed as the venue with the highest injury risk in the NRL last season, according to the NRL’s 2018 Injury Surveillance Report.

The study involved data from all 16 clubs, including 439 players who partook in the 2018 NRL season.

Suncorp recorded a league-high 8.0 per cent risk of injuries to players, also topping all venues with an average of 2.7 casualties per game.

Gold Coast’s Cbus Super Stadium was narrowly behind Suncorp with a 7.8 per cent injury risk to players while equalling the average injuries per contest.

New Zealand’s Mt Smart Stadium came in third with a 6.4 per cent injury risk.

Interestingly, Suncorp will host all eight matches in the 2019 round nine fixture as part of the league’s inaugural Magic Round, but NRL head of football Graham Annesley had no concerns with the Broncos’ home ground.

“There’s no question that Suncorp is a first-class stadium with a quality surface and on this occasion, I would think the (2018) figures are skewed by nothing more than bad luck,’’ Annesley told the Daily Telegraph.

“Eight games over four days (next year) is an unusual amount of traffic and the weather will play a role in that as well.

“But we’ll definitely be talking to the venue about how of paramount, is the health and safety of the players.’’

Despite ranking behind Suncorp with regards to risk of injury, Brookvale Oval in NSW’s northern beaches accounted for the most games missed by injury at a league-high 9.9 per cent.

The study also revealed that 88.6 per cent of players suffered an injury in 2018, with front-rowers suffering the most casualties followed by back-rowers.

Tackling an opponent accounted 31.3 per cent of injuries, and the most common injuries were to the head (23.5 per cent) followed by upper leg/thigh (17.4 per cent).

I wonder how many injuries occur when the player runs/slides off the playing surface into an advertising board or onto concrete/some other non-grass-like surface and there's no other player tackling them?

This from the mole:

The Warriors have suffered a worrying setback in their lead-up to the new season with veteran five-eighth Blake Green damaging his hamstring yesterday.

Green’s injury at training and the departure of Shaun Johnson means that the Warriors will go into the trials without an established playmaker in their ranks.

WWOS revealed recently that former Penrith rookie Adam Keighran, 21, is set to fill Johnson’s massive shoes despite never having played an NRL game.

But his task was expected to be made easier by the presence of Green alongside him in the trials.

While Green’s injury is not serious, it is expected to keep him out of the club’s two trials in late February and early March.

He is hopeful of being fit for the premiership kickoff in mid March.

The club’s 2017 NYC player of the year, Chanel Harris-Tavita, is expected to get a chance to shine in the trials in Green’s place.

Cool. These things happen. Looking forward to getting an early idea how the club expects to manage these type of situations this year.

Oh dear...
The decision not to sign a replacement half is looking more and more risky
