Rooney to miss a week

A corked thigh will keep Luke Rooney out action for at least one week.

Rooney came off just before half-time in last night's SOO game after getting what he thought was a knee in the area of the upper left thigh.

"It's a cork and Luke will be out for at least a week," Panthers General Manager Rugby League, Michael Leary, said today.

No decision has yet been made on a replacement.
