Hiku to miss a month of NRL for Penrith

Penrith winger Peta Hiku has been ruled out for up to a month of NRL with an eye socket injury.

The New Zealand representative, who missed the end of last season with a knee injury, copped a knock early in Saturday's loss to St George Illawarra.

"He's cracked his eye socket, he's heard from the doctor just before lunch. It was in the first five minutes, so he's a tough kid, he played on," Penrith coach Anthony Griffin said.
