Tate gone for up to six weeks

8:35 am on 7 June 2010

The Warriors centre Brent Tate will be missing for up to six weeks after breaking his jaw in Sunday's two-point loss to the National Rugby League leaders St George Illawarra in Auckland.

Tate will have a plate surgically inserted today while the Warriors are ruing one that got away in the 22-20 loss that keeps the Dragons top, while the Warriors are now 11th in the standings.

Elsewhere, the Raiders are 10th after getting up over the Gold Coast Titans 28-24 in Canberra and the Broncos thrashed the Manly Sea Eagles 22-6, with the AFL-bound Israel Folau scoring two tries.
