Tawera Nikau should learn tomorrow whether his doctor will allow him to travel to Sydney to present the Dally M award to the best and fairest player in the National Rugby League.
Nikau's right leg was amputated below the knee in Waikato Hospital late last month after complications arose from injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident on July 1.
The League Correspondent learned today that NRL chief executive David Gallop had approached the former New Zealand league international to see if he would be special guest at the awards night on Tuesday week.
It is understood Nikau was keen to attend, but his doctor was worried the trip could be too taxing and a decision would be made tomorrow.
