Sam Tomkins threw a scare through the Warriors camp today when he was forced out of training with a hip injury.

The star import took no further part in the session after eventually being removed from the field on the team's electric buggy.

Coach Andrew McFadden was playing down the injury which he listed as a strained hip flexor.

He suggested it wasn't serious and hoped Tomkins would be fine by tomorrow when the injury would be reassessed.

McFadden wasn't prepared to debate who might replace Tomkins in the No 1 jersey for Saturday night's clash with the Broncos in Brisbane if the injury worsened.

With specialist fullback Kevin Locke having departed the club in controversial circumstances young wing David Fusitu'a looks a likely option, having played fullback for the Under-20s and reserve grade.

But losing Tomkins would be a blow given the English player's growing form in his debut season in the NRL.
