Fuifui Moimoi will have scans on a knee injury on Tuesday.

The Tongan prop, signed during the close season from NRL side Parramatta Eels, suffered the injury in the early stages of Leigh’s 54-6 win over Workington at the Sports Village today.

Leigh coach Paul Rowley said Moimoi could be out for “a couple of weeks” though had an outside chance of playing in Centurions’ fifth round Ladbrokes Challenge Cup tie against Salford Red Devils.

“Fuifui is struggling and definitely won’t play against Sheffield. He will go fo a scan tomorrow. We’ll assess that and hopefully it will just be a week or two. The best case scenario is that he will be back for Salford.”
