Tuqiri suffers another NRL injury setback - FAMOUS SPORTS CELEBRITIES

Tuqiri suffers another NRL injury setbackTuqiri suffers another NRL injury setback

Lote Tuqiri's wretched run with injuries has continued with the Wests Tigers winger set to miss the first four months of the NRL season due to an arm injury.

Tuqiri underwent surgery on Tuesday after scans showed the broken arm he suffered in July last year had failed to heal.

A devastated Tuqiri said he was determined to return to the field despite the setback.

"I was really looking forward to helping the club have the success that everyone is after this year," Tuqiri said in a statement released by the club on Thursday.

"I have to accept the reality. I will work hard on my rehab and hope to make a contribution later in the year."

On Tuesday, Tuqiri underwent bone grafts and had two plates inserted into the arm.

The 33-year-old has been dogged by injuries since returning to the NRL from rugby union in 2010.

The broken left upper arm brought Tuqiri's 2012 season to a premature end and, the year before, he suffered a broken wrist.

The latest setback has put Tuqiri's future under a cloud. He is signed to a one-year contract at the Tigers.

New coach Mick Potter vowed the club would do everything it could to get Tuqiri back on the field.

"Lote has worked hard in preseason training. He was doing all the fitness work but hasn't been able to get a clearance from the surgeon to do any contact work," Potter said.

"We will do everything we can to support his rehabilitation and our main priority is to ensure that he fully recovers."
