Kikau injured, Koroisau to continue

Fiji Bati forward Viliame Kikau will miss out from the match against the Sydney Roosters in round 15 of NRL on Friday.

Kikau suffered a hamstring injury against the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks last week.

Meanwhile, Fiji Bati hooker Apisai Koroisau, who was issued a tripping charge by the NRL Match Review Committee following Friday's defeat to Sharks has been included in the Panthers starting line-up this week.

Koroisau received a grade one tripping charge for contact on Sharks playmaker Shaun Johnson in the 55th minute of the game at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium.

He faces a monetary penalty only and not suspension.

Koroisau was not charged for the tackle which saw him placed on report by referee Ashley Klein during the first half against the Sharks.

Origin representatives Nathan Cleary, Jarome Luai, Isaah Yeo, Brian To'o and Kurt Capewell return to the starting side.

The Panthers will take on the Roosters at 9.55pm on Friday.
