The Sydney Roosters and Brisbane Broncos both kick-started their 2018 with wins last night but both came at a cost with Daniel Tupou and Jordan Kahu facing long stints on the sidelines.

Tupou’s injury looks certain to sideline him for an extended period after the winger failed to finish the match against the Bulldogs with a suspected pec tear.

Tupou will go for scans but it’s likely he’ll miss up to two months of football while recovering.

Broncos centre Jordan Kahu is also facing time on the sidelines after breaking his jaw in a collision with Cowboys five-eighth Te Maire Martin.

  1. Terrible news for Kahu, who just can’t seem to get a break injury wise. That said, on the field, the fact that Kahu is unavailable should mean the more defensively solid Opacic, Moses Pengai or Seve get an opportunity in the centre spot Kahu now vacates – which is better for the team.
