Sam in doubt

Thursday, July 17, 2014

AUCKLAND - The Warriors could be without star fullback Sam Tomkins for Saturday's NRL clash against fellow top-eight rivals Brisbane.

The 25-year-old England international went down clutching his hip at training yesterday, was carted away to the team's medical facilities and didn't return.

Warriors coach Andrew McFadden said the initial prognosis was positive but a call on his fitness would be made before the team left for Brisbane today.

"He just felt his hip flexor tighten up a bit," McFadden said.

"We'll have a look then see how he pulls up tomorrow. I've spoken to our medical department and they think he will be OK, but we'll see."

After the early release of Kiwis fullback Kevin Locke to Salford in the UK Super League, the Warriors are low on experienced outside backs should Tomkins need to be replaced.
