Coles was replaced in the 42nd minute because of an ankle injury. He has since had an x-ray on his left ankle which was clear. Matu'u also received a knock to his shoulder and came off with two minutes to play in the match.

At this stage the next step is to monitor them both over the next 48 hours to see how they pull through.

Mark Hammett said: "It was a physical game last night and after the intensity of that second half there will be a few sore bodies today. The medical team will monitor both Dane and Motu over the next couple of days and should be in a better position on Monday to determine the seriousness of the knocks and when they are available to train and play."
