Hurrell worries about missing Broncos clash

Used to dishing out the punishment - Konrad Hurrell's now the one on the receiving end.
The rookie battering-ram is in a moon boot - and missing Friday's clash with the Broncos worries him.
“Especially if someone will play in my position, might be hard for me to come back into the team, if they play better,” says Hurrell.
That's doubtful, especially after his three tries against the Titans. But his early exit from the game brought his mother to tears.
“She didn't care about the game, she said, ‘how's the injury,’ kind of started crying. I said ‘mum, it's OK, it's not so serious’,” says Hurrell.
He should be fit for next week, but another blockbusting back – Manu Vatuvei – is raring to go.
“Having that three weeks off gave me a good break, making sure my body was feeling good, came at the right time,” he says.

“You're gaining another big, big beast Manu back, he's looking exceptionally well out there, looking fast and looking solid,” says Warriors fullback Kevin Locke.
Locke is another who's battled with an injury plagued season - a groin tweak on his way to the try line won't stop him playing on Friday.
“Just need to work through it, it's not causing me too much pain. I can play through it, I can train out there, I trained today and ran around,” he says.
There are plenty of threats for the Broncos to contain - but they'll be relieved that Hurrell isn't one of them.
