Knee injury ends Hiku's NRL season

  • Knee injury ends Hiku's NRL season

    SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA - MAY 22: Peta Hiku of the Panthers grimaces as he lies on the ground with an injury during the round 11 NRL match between the Penrith Panthers and the Gold Coast Titans at Pepper Stadium on May 22, 2016 in Sydney, Australia. (Photo by Mark Kolbe/Getty Images)

Penrith will be without Peta Hiku for the rest of the NRL season, with the Kiwi Test representative to undergo a knee reconstruction.

Hiku sustained the injury in Sunday's loss to Gold Coast, tearing both his anterior and medial cruciate ligament, and will undergo surgery in the next fortnight.

In a double blow for the Panthers - who have already lost centre Dean Whare to a season-ending knee injury - they will also be without forward James Fisher-Harris for up to eight weeks due to a fractured thumb.
