New Zealand Warriors winger Marcello Montoya injured his knee in the club’s defeat to Penrith Panthers and it is likely a season-ending injury.

Meanwhile, Fiji Bati coach Joe Rabele will be leaving for Australia on Friday to join the squad in camp before they depart for England on Sunday.

Fiji is in group B with Australia, Italy and Scotland.

The tournament kicks off on October 15th.
