Locke cleared of serious injury

Winger Kevin Locke has been cleared of a serious hip injury after scoring the match-winning try in the Vodafone Warriors' dramatic 20-18 win over the Sydney Roosters in yesterday's 16th-round NRL clash at AMI Stadium in Christchurch.

Locke (21) collided with a goalpost in scoring the try, his third of the match, and was taken to ChristchurchHospital soon after for x-rays.

He stayed behind in Christchurch with team doctor John Mayhew last night before flying back to Auckland this morning.

Mayhew said while Locke was still in some pain today, x-rays had confirmed there was no serious injury to his hip.
