WARRIORS head coach Jonathan Thomas has confirmed that full-back Melani Nanai has torn his hamstring. 

"Melani is going to be out for a little while," said new head coach Thomas.

"He has torn his hamstring and we have to wait and see what the damage is but he will be out, unfortunately."

There was some good news on Billy Searle and Ollie Lawrence, as Thomas said both of those injuries were "nothing serious" and were more precautionary more than anything else.
