Warriors half Thomas Leuluai may be out of today's clash with the Dragons - and could now be in doubt for the Kiwis' test next Friday.

Reports are yet to be confirmed, but it's understood that the veteran utility player picked up an injury in training last week.

It would be another blow for Warriors coach Andrew McFadden. He already has a team littered with rookies for today's match - after axing several senior players on Friday for their breach of team standards.

Jeff Robson hasn't taken the field for the NSW Cup match and would be the likely replacement.

The news may also have ramifications for the Kiwis. In the absence of Kieran Foran, Leuluai was a strong option to replace him in the halves. He can also cover several positions and is one of the most experienced players in the Kiwis environment.
