Panthers' Kikau cleared of serious injury

Penrith second-rower Viliame Kikau is set to miss just one NRL game with a knee injury.

Panthers officials had feared the demolition man would be out for up to six weeks with a medial ligament tear but the injury is now considered only minor.

Kikau will miss Friday's clash with the Sydney Roosters but should be fit to face Manly after the representative round.
