Powerhouse Storm forward sidelined
Storm prop Nelson Asofa-Solomona will be sidelined for up to eight weeks after tearing his Posterior Cruciate Ligament yesterday.
The New Zealand-born forward played 25 minutes in Melbourne’s victory over Wests Tigers before injuring his left knee during the second half at AAMI Park.
Storm Football Director Frank Ponissi expressed the Club’s disappointment at losing the young prop to injury.
“Nelson’s injury is disappointing given he has contributed greatly to the forward pack’s success so far this year,” Ponissi said.
