Lockyer could return within two

Brisbane fullback Darren Lockyer is confident that he could be ready for the round 23 clash with the Wests Tigers in just two weeks time.

Lockyer has been having problems with his ankle for over a month now. The latest problem came two weeks ago against Melbourne when late in the game he re-aggravated the injury. Despite returning to the field, MRI scans later found that the Australian fullback had torn ligaments and would be out for over a month.

Lockyer has been impressed with his recovery and has blown away predictions that he wouldn?t return until the finals. He now feels that he could be ready for the Tigers match and if not, then the Warriors match the week after.
