Locke sidelined for Warriors

New Zealand Warriors full-back Kevin Locke faces up to a month on the sidelines with a sternum injury.

Locke suffered the injury in the early stages of the ANZAC Day defeat to Melbourne at AAMI Park after a heavy tackle.

The 23-year-old New Zealand international, who was making his comeback from a leg injury, is expected to miss up to four weeks.

Meanwhile, experienced prop Sam Rapira suffered an ankle injury in the same match although it is unknown how long he could be out.

Halfback Shaun Johnson however will be fit to face Brisbane next Friday after suffering a shoulder injury in the ANZAC test against Australia last weekend.
