Sam Tomkins sidelined for six weeks

New Zealand Warriors full-back Sam Tomkins is set to be out for up to six weeks, after suffering a partial tear of the posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

Tomkins left the Warriors’ weekend game with Parramatta just 11 minutes into the action. He should be available again in late April or early May.

“The outcome is a lot better than it could have been,” said Warriors head coach Andrew McFadden.

“Sam will rehab the injury and should be available again in a few weeks.

“Obviously it’s a setback being without a player of his quality but it’s also a big opportunity for Tui (Lolohea).

“He’s already had a full game at fullback against the Knights and he played there for another 30 minutes on Saturday. He’s a player with special ability and we have great confidence in him.”
