Velbexx-17 Injury Update: Round 24
Wests Tigers can provide the following Velbexx-17 injury update leading into Thursday night’s match against the Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium.
Outside back Keith Lulia will miss the reminder of the season after scans revealed a small vertebrae fracture in his neck.
Lulia suffered the injury in the Round 22 loss to North Queensland, resulting in his late withdrawal from Saturday’s match against the Roosters. After consulting with a specialist, Lulia received an estimated recovery time of eight to 12 weeks.
Dene Halatau suffered a hamstring strain during the weekend’s match at Leichhardt Oval and will be monitored further this week.
Aaron Woods suffered a knock to the knee and will undergo further scans tonight, with an update to be provided later this week.
