One change to Warriiors

9:34 am on 14 April 2010

There's only one change to the Warriors team for the round six NRL match with Penrith in Auckland on Sunday with winger Bill Tupou returning for Manu Vatuvei who aggravated his hamstring injury in Saturday night's the win over the Bulldogs .


Simon Mannering's continued absence means Brent Tate will again lead the side with Wade McKinnon at fullback, Joel Moon in the centres and Lance Hohaia at standoff.

But a long injury list wil force the Warriors top again field a forward pack without one 100-game player while Penrith will have the likes of Petero Civoniceva, who's played more than 250 games, Trent Waterhouse and Frank Pritchard.

The Warriors and Penrith have three wins and two loss records with the Panthers coming off a decisive 28-6 victory over the Sydney Roosters;.
