Tomkins suffered a mild hip flexor strain during the squad's training session on Wednesday, and was taken off the field in a motorised cart.

The coach Andrew McFadden says he's still hopeful Tomkins will be able to take the field at Suncorp Stadium and will give him every opportunity to prove his fitness.

The utility back Solomone Kata has been added to the squad as cover, with the wing David Fusitu'a likely to shift to fullback if Tomkins is ruled out.
