Locke's name in lights after brilliant starring role

5:57 am on 22 August 2011

Kevin Locke has had rave reviews after his stunning all round performance in the Warriors' 26-12 win yesterday over Penrith in the NRL.

The Warrriors fullback was compared with Billy Slater after scoring one try, setting up another, and saving a try by the Panthers Michael Jennings with a brilliant chase in a man -of-the round performance.

Forward Micheal Luck's fitness is a concern again after he copped a shoulder injury.

The Warriors are in fourth place.

The big match this week is Manly-Melbourne on Friday night.
