Wests Tigers utility Dene Halatau is back on the sidelines and likely to miss two matches with an ankle injury. Halatau twisted his ankle in the Tigers' 44-4 win over South Sydney on Sunday and will get the results of scans tomorrow.
The talented New Zealand international underwent a shoulder reconstruction during the off-season before making a return in round nine. Teammate Shane Elford, who has a shoulder problem, is expected to only miss this weekend's grand final re-match against North Queensland.
