Warriors fullback Sam Tomkins has been sidelined for up to six weeks of the NRL with a knee injury.
He suffered a partial tear of the the posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during Saturday's 29-16 win over the Eels.
Tomkins is expected to return in late April or early May.
"The outcome is a lot better than it could have been," said Warriors coach Andrew McFadden.

"Sam will rehab the injury and should be available again in a few weeks.
"Obviously it's a setback being without a player of his quality but it's also a big opportunity for Tui (Lolohea).
"He's already had a full game at fullback against the Knights and he played there for another 30 minutes on Saturday. He's a player with special ability and we have great confidence in him."
Tomkins, who turned 26 today, joins an injury list which still includes Sam Rapira (hamstring), Konrad Hurrell (knee) and Ngani Laumape (knee).
