Warriors wait on possible loan extensions for Alvaro, Jennings

The Warriors are waiting to find out whether Parramatta loan duo Daniel Alvaro and George Jennings will remain in camp with the squad after Sunday's clash with the Bulldogs.

Alvaro and Jennings joined the Warriors on a four-week loan deal last month but that agreement could be extended should the Eels grant the pair further time to stay with the squad.

The Eels are the most injury-free club in the Telstra Premiership following Thursday night's win over the Storm.

However, it's a different story for the Warriors, who remain stretched with player availability due to injuries and players returning to New Zealand throughout the season.

Speaking to media on Thursday, Jennings was uncertain where his immediate future lies.

"All I know is that I was told I'd be on a four-week loan and I haven't heard too much about whether I'm staying or not," Jennings said.

"So I'm assuming after this week I'll be going back to Parramatta."

Jennings remained open to the idea of staying at the Warriors if he wasn't going to be required by Brad Arthur leading into the finals.

The Eels also play the Warriors in round 17, which will almost certainly see both he and Alvaro miss the clash unless they're lining up in blue and gold.

"I'm really enjoying it here and just playing every week," Jennings said.

"Obviously, I'd like to continue playing, but I think that decision isn’t up to me. I'll do whatever both clubs want."

The latest follows confirmation Panthers prop Jack Hetherington will leave the Warriors camp after a training session on Friday following a six-game stint.

Hetherington will reunite with his competition-leading Panthers teammates but will need to serve another three weeks on the sidelines after taking the early guilty plea for a high shot on Marty Taupau in round 13.

All parties haven't ruled out the prospect of Hetherington returning to the Warriors in the final weeks of the regular season.

"If all the boys at Penrith are fit, Ivan's given me the all-clear to come back to the Warriors and play the rest of the year out with them," Hetherington said.

"It was a bizarre feeling leaving my mates I'd built relationships with over the past five years, being at Penrith and then creating new relationships here at the Warriors.

"But I think it builds character, getting in uncomfortable positions, leaving home and becoming vulnerable. They're a resilient and great bunch of blokes."
