Hohaia, Matulino ruled out for Warriors

Warriors utility Lance Hohaia could miss up to six weeks in the NRL with a knee injury while forward Ben Matulino faces up to three weeks on the sidelines with an ankle complaint.

Hohaia ruptured the posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during Saturday's triumph over Parramatta and will miss between three and six weeks.

Kiwi Test star Hohaia lasted just 19 minutes in the 26-18 win, but scored a try either side of halftime before being forced off with the injury.

Hohaia does not need surgery and should return before the end of April.

Matulino, 20, lasted only 14 minutes against the Eels, and didn't require a scan on a high sprain of his right ankle.

Warriors doctor John Mayhew said Matulino would probably be available again in either the fourth or fifth round of the NRL season.

The Warriors fly to Sydney on Saturday to take on defending champions Manly at Brookvale Oval on Sunday afternoon.
