Luck returns to lead Warriors in Melbourne

6:48 pm on 20 April 2010

The Warriors loose forward Micheal Luck returns from a two-match injury break to lead the side in the round seven Anzac Day clash against the NRL premiers the Storm in Melbourne on Sunday.

Luck, broke his right index finger, and missed the win over the Bulldogs in Sydney and Sunday's home loss to the Panthers.

But the other injured senior players, captain Simon Mannering, Manu Vatuvei, Steve Price and Brett Seymour, remain on the sideline.

Coach Ivan Cleary has revamped the backline, pairing Jerome Ropati with Joel Moon in the centres and moving Brent Tate to the right wing in place of Kevin Locke.

The Warriors head to Melbourne with a three win-three loss record to face a Storm side just two points ahead on eight points after last night's home loss to Manly.
