MATT PEET HAS PROVIDED A SHOCK DOCTOR INJURY UPDATE AS THE WARRIORS PREPARE FOR ROUND 4 OF BETFRED SUPER LEAGUE.

Liam Byrne was replaced on the bench by debutant Tiaki Chan in a late change ahead of Friday night’s win over Huddersfield Giants at the DW Stadium.

Peet confirmed post-match that the forward suffered a ‘bruised hip’ in the Betfred World Club Challenge victory over Penrith Panthers, and providing an update on Byrne ahead of Saturday’s clash against London Broncos, Peet said: “We won’t pick Liam this week so that we can give him time to heal.

“He played a lot of last year hurt which has been well documented, so we want to give him time to get back to full fitness because he is very important for us. We will assess him going into the Salford game.”

On Kruise Leeming, who suffered an ankle injury against Penrith, Peet said: “Kruise is similar. He won’t play against London but we will see how he is moving before Salford.”

The Warriors head coach also provided a positive update on Mike Cooper: “Mike has had some good news. There were two options; one was much longer-term and the same as Junior Nsemba – around five months – but it turns out he just needs a bit of a tidy up on his knee. He’s going to be six weeks with the injury, but we’re happy for Mike there.”
