THE Fiji National Rugby League is keeping a close tab on Melbourne Storm winger Sisa Waqa.
Waqa was taken off the field on a Medicab after landing heavily on his head and neck in the National Rugby League finals against South Sydney Rabbitohs on Friday night.
The Rabbitohs won the match 20-10 at the ANZ Stadium in Sydney, Australia.
FNRL general manager Tomi Finau said Fiji Bati head coach Rick Stone was closely monitoring the situation.
He said they were hopeful Waqa would be fit for the Rugby League World Cup.
"It's very unfortunate what happened to Sisa but injuries are bound to happen especially as the NRL has entered its finals," Finau said.
"We have a lot of wingers on our radar so there is still depth in this position."
In a comment on Facebook, Waqa said: "Thank God I'm moving around normally. Scans got cleared last night with no structural damage or anything obvious which is great news.
"Hopefully get back on the field next weekend. I want to thank everyone for their text messages, kind words and prayers. Really appreciate them all."
Meanwhile, Finau said they would not consider any player with injuries in the final squad for the world cup.
Fiji is pooled with Australia, England and Ireland in Group A of the RLWC which starts next month.
"There is a process we have been following while selecting NRL players which requires each player to get medical clearance from their club doctors," Finau said.
"Then our team doctor, who is also a NRL doctor, will assess the players before they are confirmed to be part of the Fiji Bati team."
