SAINTS are sweating on the fitness of prop forward Tony Puletua.

Acting head coach Mike Rush expects to get a clear diagnosis on the 31-year-old’s injured shoulder later this week.

However, while Puletua won’t be available for this weekend’s game, his injury is not believed to result in a lengthy lay-off.

Saints have also received positive news about winger Ade Gardener’s knee problem and Jon Wilkin’s crocked shoulder.

Both seasoned pros are expected to back within a month.
