Samoa hit by brutal RLWC injury blow

Samoa winger Hamiso Tabuay Fidou looks set to miss part of the Dolphins’ NRL preseason with an ankle injury. He could lose three of his players in the rest of the match as coach Matt Parrish looks into the wreckage of his Cup opener at Rugby League World in disastrous. event.

The Samoans, much touted as upset hosts England at Newcastle on Saturday (Sunday morning AEDT), barely fired as they went on to lose 60-6.

To make matters worse, Parrish is likely to lose three starting members against Greece next week.

Tabuay Fidow had a suspected ankle injury after starting on the wing.

If surgery is required, it could delay his return to pre-season training at his new club.

Cronulla prop Braden Hamlin Uele was also sidelined with injury, while utility Tyrone May, now with the Catalan Dragons, suffered a dislocated hip that caused a long delay in the second half at St. James Park. rice field.

“I think he (May) is at the Royal Newcastle Hospital,” Parrish said.

“We have a few injuries here and I don’t think we will play any more tournaments.

“I think Braden has calves and Hamiso has syndesmosis.

“He wears moonboots and crutches, so I’d be surprised if any of those three get even more involved.”

Tabuay-Fidou has confirmed a move to the Dolphins before the 2023 season, and his future teammate Anthony Milford is likely to face a suspension.

Milford was sent to the sinbin for hitting a high shot on England captain Sam Tomkins in the second half and could have been ruled out of the remaining two pool games against Greece and France.

Chanel Harris Tabitha is the most likely replacement for Milford.

“We’re not looking for excuses or anything like that,” Parrish said.

“I haven’t had much luck with injuries, so maybe I need a little more resilience.”
