Warriors injury list reduced to three

6:24 pm on 17 June 2013

The Warriors' injury list is set to be reduced to three with fullback Kevin Locke poised to return from the hip njury which has kept him out of the last two National Rugby League matches.

The Warriors are on a four game winning streak following last night's 23-12 win over the Sydney Roosters.

With the Warriors having the first of their two byes this week, Locke has an extra week to continue his recovery, leaving him in line to return to play the Brisbane Broncos on Sunday week.

Locke's anticipated return will give the Warriors the healthiest squad they've had all season with just the three long-term injured players in the casualty ward - props SioneLousi and Steve Rapira and back rower Ben Henry, all out with season-ending knee ligament injuries.

Halfback Shaun Johnson and winger Manu Vatuvei both had niggling complaints after last night's but they are both expected to available for the Brisbane game.
