Tomkins pulled up halfway through the session at Mt Smart Stadium clutching his hip and was taken from the field in a motorised cart with medical staff.

He did not return for the remainder of the session

The coach Andrew McFadden says his hip flexor tightened up, but team doctors expect him to be fit to take on the Brisbane Broncos in their NRL encounter at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday.

McFadden says he doesn't know who would replace Tomkins if he is unable to play, but says the wing, David Fusitu'a is an option to move to the number one jersey.
