Velbexx17 Injury Report - Round 8
Wests Tigers have provided the following updates on a number of players who sustained injuries in the Club's 22-6 Round 8 loss against the Gold Coast Titans.
Keith Galloway (finger), Braith Anasta (ankle), Blake Austin (cork) and David Nofoaluma (knee) all sustained injuries in the loss, but Wests Tigers are hopeful that most will be available for their Round 9 match against the Sydney Roosters at Allianz Stadium.
Galloway, Anasta and Nofoaluma all underwent scans with mixed results.
Anasta is expected to miss between two and three weeks with a ligament tear in his ankle, with the Club hopeful that he will be back for their Round 10 clash against Cronulla Sharks.
Galloway suffered a tendon tear in his finger, but given the week off with the international break, Wests Tigers expect him to be available for selection in Round 9.
Club medical staff are expecting Nofoaluma to be available for the Round 9 match against Sydney Roosters; however, the winger will be monitored closely until the day.
Austin limped off the field in the 22-6 defeat agianst the Titans with a cork, but is expected to be available for selection for the Round 9 match.
Wests Tigers will provide a second injury update later this week on existing injuries.
