Ropati out for the season

9:39 am on 18 May 2012

Another National Rugby League season is over for the injury-plagued Warriors centre Jerome Ropati.

The Kiwi international was initially thought to be sidelined for only eight weeks with a dislocated patella in his left knee suffered in last weekend's home win over the Sydney Roosters.

But Ropati's now set to have surgery in a heartbreaker for the 27-year-old, who missed most of last season with a ruptured ACL.
