Lauiti'iti Still Has A Way To Go

The Warriors are scoffing at rumours Ali Lauiti'iti will resume playing in the next week or so.

However the star second rower may be back sooner than expected, if he gets a clearance from the specialist tomorrow to start a physical contact programme.

Warriors coach Daniel Anderson is playing down the speculation of an early comeback.

He says it is absurd to think Lauiti'iti will play this week, considering he has not even done a push up, let alone tackling.

Anderson says Lauiti'iti will probably be allowed to rejoin physical training and opposed tackling technique sessions soon.
