Foran ruled out ahead of Warriors clash with Raiders

Kieran Foran will miss Sunday's game against the Raiders due to a shoulder injury

Warriors playmaker Kieran Foran has been ruled out of tomorrow's NRL clash with Canberra due to a shoulder complaint.

With halfback Shaun Johnson now crocked, it has fallen upon the Canterbury-bound Foran to take up the reins as playmaker-in-chief.

But the 27-year-old has struggled to do so in recent weeks, with the Warriors losing five on the trot and falling out of finals contention.

His absence means second-year NRL player Ata Hingano (20) teams up in the halves with inexperienced Mason Lino (23).

The club expects Foran to return for next week's clash with the Rabbitohs.

Hingano, who debuted late last season would be playing just his 12th NRL match and making only his fifth start, while it would be just the seventh appearance for Lino.

With Foran (171 games) and Shaun Johnson (142 games) sidelined and hooker Issac Luke (228 matches) moved to the bench, captain Roger Tuivasa-Sheck - in his 111th appearance - will be the only one of the Warriors' all-international spine starting tomorrow.

Apart from Foran, 2017 rookie James Bell is the other player to drop out of the extended squad of 21 players named on Tuesday.

The match kicks off at Mount Smart Stadium at 4 tomorrow afternoon.
