Price ruled out of NRL this weekend after being knocked out

6:46 pm on 16 July 2009

The Warriors captain Steve Price has been ruled out of Sunday's national rugby league match against the Sydney Roosters in Sydney, after being knocked out in the final State of Origin match.

The 35-year-old Queensland prop was knocked unconscious and taken off on a stretcher in the final few minutes of New South Wales win in Brisbane after trading blows with New South Wales front rower Brett White.

Price says he can't be remember the fight although he has seen it on television.

He'll be reviewed by medical staff when he returns to Auckland and will hopefully return for Sunday week's clash against St George Illawarra at Mount Smart Stadium.

A decision won't be made until game day on who will replace Price in the starting line-up against the Roosters.
