NRL 2021: NZ Warriors lose key players Tohu Harris, David Fusitu'a on eve of Melbourne Storm clash

The NZ Warriors have been dealt a cruel blow before their ANZAC day clash against the Melbourne Storm with key players Tohu Harris and David Fusitu'a  ruled out.

Harris came off late for a head injury assessment - which he passed - in the Warriors 20-14 victory over the Dragons last week but has failed to pass the concussion protocols during the week according to

This sees Jazz Tevaga move from the interchange bench to start at lock with Tom Ale joining the bench. 

The Warriors will also be without wing David Fusitu'a who failed to overcome a hamstring injury, which will see teenager Rocco Berry make his NRL debut in the Anzac day clash against the Storm. 

The injury news comes on the back of utility back Paul turner being ruled out for the season after requiring "extensive surgery" to repair his shoulder, which will sideline him for the rest of the year.

"I don't think we will see him again this year, which is really disappointing," Warriors assistant coach Craig Hodges says.
