    Hohaia
    Kirk
    Tate
    Ropati
    Vatuvei
    Witt
    Fien
    Wiki
    Henderson
    Price
    Mannering
    Swann
    Luck

    Tuimavave
    Rapira
    Lauaki
    Matelino

    18th- Rovelli

    A couple of big positives for them, with Rovelli out of the side and Vatuvei into it.

    Will be a lot hard to be looking at that. Players we need to be wary of are Henderson and Vatuvei for me, they provide a lot of spark for the side. Need to be especially wary of Hendersons running game from dummy half

    Matelino is a very promising young player too

    The areas we need to exploit for me are the backrow, they are all workhorses, we can dominate there, and hit the areas around Ropati in defence as he has been found wanting recently.

    Na not at the game Byso, opposite end of the country for me

    Were no charges laid at all over the weekend prior to MNF nutz

    Having watched these blokes for years, i have seen them play crap v the lightweights and demolish the heavyweights so many times i just can't get comfortable for this one

    I agree.  Case in point - Dragons @ Brookvale.  That was win 2 for them in a row and now they're 6th.  Not saying Warriors will be like that but i feel a slight trepidation about this game.  I hope we put another big score on them though

    Agree with Kiwi re Henderson. He's in the middle of a very good patch of form (I've kept a fairly close eye on him ever since I chucked the creative little bugger into my fantasy team).

    Tate's burned us too many times in the past as well. Far too many times.

    I'm actually fine with Vatuvai's inclusion. Hasn't played in yonks. His timing will be out, won't be match fit etc. He was in killer form before his injury...but first game back? Could be a weak link.

    We shouldn't lose this sort of game. If we keep losing these types of games then we'll be clinging to a top eight spot rather than aiming for a home final. Manly by 12.

    Not confirmed, but there is talk that Vatuvei might be gone for another 8 weeks. That could really stuff the little boost they would have had going into the match thinking they had him
