Warriors have bizarre start to NRL Nines

No jerseys? No problem.

The Warriors had a bizarre start to their NRL Nines campaign after being forced to borrow the men's jerseys and play without socks in their 13-8 win over the Roosters.

On the way to HBF Park women's jerseys were accidentally left at the hotel, and put into an Uber to be delivered in time for the game.

However, the jerseys and socks were delivered to HBF Stadium, a venue of confusingly similar name across town in Perth.

Following the game, the women then peeled off the jerseys and returned them to the men, who wore them in their 34-0 loss to Newcastle soon afterwards.

In the other women's game, St George Illawarra copped a huge blow in their 13-6 loss to the Broncos with Holli Wheeler suffering a suspected ACL injury.

The 30-year-old Australia and NSW star was stretchered off the field in agony after being twisted in a tackle against Brisbane.

Wheeler, the club's vice-captain, will go for scans to confirm the extent of the injury.

The Broncos finished the day at the top of the standings leading into day two on Saturday.
