Peta Hiku is expected to be available for New Zealand's end of season Tests despite being ruled out of the Warriors' round 25 clash with Canberra.

The news is not as good for Chanel Harris-Tavita and Tohu Harris.

Harris-Tavita may require surgery to fix ligament damage in his left arm. He is facing a five-week recovery.

Harris was ruled out of the end of season internationals by coach Stephen Kearney on Wednesday, with a foot injury still causing issues.

Jazz Tevaga met with a surgeon this week to get ankle examined. Kearney said Tevaga has multiple injury issues to deal with over off-season.

Experienced back rower Tohu Harris and rookie centre Patrick Herbert have returned to full training with Vodafone Warriors.

After appearing in the first 13 matches of the 2019 season, Harris was side-lined for the last 11 with a foot injury.

Herbert, who made his NRL debut against Melbourne on Anzac Day, was hampered by leg injury late in a season in which he made eight first-grade appearances.

It’s yet to be determined how long he will be side-lined for.
