A big blow for the New Zealand Warriors and their fans, ahead of Sunday's sold-out homecoming match at Mount Smart Stadium.

Star fullback Reece Walsh has been ruled out of the clash with the Wests Tigers, after failing a Covid test today.

Walsh is now isolating and following the NRL's Apollo protocols - he’ll return to training when the team reassembles in Redcliffe following next week's bye.
