Unlucky Luke out for a month with injury

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 4/08/2016

The Warriors have revealed hooker Issac Luke has picked up a knee injury which will keep him out of action for a month.

The Warriors had named Luke, 29, to start against the Gold Coast Titans on Sunday.

But on Friday they revealed he picked up the knee injury late in the 20-16 golden point win over Penrith.

It was hoped following arthroscopic surgery early next week, he would be back for the club's final regular season match against the Parramatta Eels at Mt Smart early in September.

Nathaniel Roache is likely to replace him for the Titans match while Jazz Tevaga has been brought into the squad from the premiership side to provide cover.
