Extra cover in Warriors side

11:41 am on 24 April 2012

The New Zealand Warriors coach Brian McClennan has added a couple of players as cover for Kiwi internationals Manu Vatuvei and Shaun Johnson for Wednesday night's National Rugby League clash with the Storm in Melbourne.

Pita Godinet and Glen Fisiiahi have been included in a 19-man squad which left for Melbourne on Monday.

Vatuvei and Johnson are both still feeling the effects of Friday night's ANZAC test defeat and didn't train on Sunday, but they have both been named to start.

Kevin Locke returns to fullback after overcoming a leg injury, replacing Jerome Ropati who was injured in the win over Souths.

McClennan has named the same forward pack that he initially selected for the Souths game.
