Lillyman to have surgery today

4:59 am on 9 February 2012

The New Zealand Warriors prop Jacob Lillyman will have surgery on his damaged right bicep today.

The 124-game NRL veteran lasted only 10 minutes of last Saturday's trial against Gold Coast before suffering the injury.

Team doctor John Mayhew says Lillyman is scheduled to have an operation today to reattach the bicep tendon to the bone at the elbow.

Mayhew confirmed Lillyman will be out for three months recovering from his injury and subsequent surgery.
