THE TEAM NEWS
NEW ZEALAND WARRIORS
Starting 13: Walsh, Watene-Zelezniak, Berry, Aitken, Montoya, Tuivasa-Sheck, Townsend, Fonua-Blake, Egan, Lodge, Sironen, Harris, Tevaga – Interchanges: Nikorima, Katoa, Curran, Ah Mau – Reserves: Evans, Pompey
Unavailable: Peta Hiku (Injured), David Fusitu’a (Injured), Tom Ale (Injured), Chanel Harris-Tavita (Injured)
- New Zealand Warriors made it five losses in a row as their top eight hopes suffered another blow with an underwhelming effort against Cronulla Sharks last week and time is running out for them to get their season back on track.
- The Warriors were lacklustre with ball in hand but they will shift Roger Tuivasa-Sheck into the halves for this contest alongside the returning Chad Townsend in a bid for greater creativity in attack.
Starting 13: Edwards, Staines, Crichton, Naden, To’o, Burton, Ty. May, Leota, Koroisau, Fisher-Harris, Kikau, Capewell, Yeo – Interchanges: Kenny, Sorensen, Leniu, Martin – Reserves: Tago, Eisenhuth
Unavailable: Nathan Cleary (Injured), Jarome Luai (Injured)
- Penrith Panthers were far from their best but managed to overcome Parramatta Eels last time out to make it back-to-back successes and they will hope to build on that to solidify their top two spot.
- The Panthers are expecting their Origin contingent to back-up after Wednesday’s game but they are missing first-choice halves pairing Nathan Cleary and Jarome Luai and that will present them with a big challenge here.
Penrith Panthers will have to cope without their two key men with
halves pairing Nathan Cleary and Jarome Luai both absent for this
contest. The Panthers were able to overcome Parramatta Eels with a gutsy
effort in a closely-fought game but the loss of Luai on the back of
that leaves them with a big challenge. New Zealand Warriors will look to
capitalise but they come into this on the back of five losses in a row
and Penrith’s defence should be able to repel them sufficiently to be
able to come out on top in this one.
