The Auckland Nines has claimed its first NRL injury scalp, with South Sydney centre Aaron Gray suffering a knee injury on day one.

Gray limped off Eden Park in the first half of the Rabbitohs' tournament-opening loss to Canberra, and it was later confirmed by the club doctor he has a medial ligament injury.

The only other major injury through the first round of games was to Warriors halfback Shaun Johnson, who hurt his groin in the warm-up ahead of his team's first game and sat out the match.
