Warriors fit for trip to Sydney

5:43 am on 22 September 2008

The Warriors are in good shape as they prepare for another trip across the Tasman in week three of the National Rugby League playoffs.

Apart from no major injury concerns, the Warriors welcome back their suspended fullback Wade McKinnon this week, although that creates a selection headache for coach Ivan Cleary with stand-in Lance Hohaia in top form.

The Warriors 30-13 win over the Sydney Roosters last Friday night made it 10 wins from their last 12 games, and ahead of this weekend's major semi-final against Manly, the Sea Eagles captain Matt Orford has warned his side the surging Warriors are a far cry from the team hammered 52-6 at Brookvale in round three.
