The New Zealand Warriors have been given a major boost with the NRL giving the side dispensation to acquire loan players from rival clubs amid a spate of injuries.
The Warriors' front row has been ravaged by injuries ahead of the May 28 restart, with Jazz Tevaga, Bunty Afoa and Jackson Frei all suffering major injuries.
NRL Head of Football Graham Annesley confirmed the league's decision on The Continuous Call Team on Saturday afternoon.
"They've been given that (dispensation) only a few hours ago," he said.
"All clubs were notified that the Warriors will be given that dispensation.
