Warriors reshuffle for Wests Tigers

6:00 pm on 7 June 2011

Shaun Berrigan has been named to start at hooker and Lance Hohaia returns from injury on the interchange bench for the Warriors' 14th-round NRL match against Wests Tigers in Auckland on Sunday.

The selection shuffle is the result of regular starting No 9 Aaron Heremaia being ruled out with a hand injury following Saturday night's loss to the Sydney Roosters.

Berrigan is set to start at hooker for the second time this year after featuring five times as a starting centre during the club's recent run of seven wins in eight games.

Hohaia returns after having two weeks off with a chest injury after the 12-6 win against South Sydney.

Prop Jacob Lillyman has been named Queensland's 18th man for next week's second State of Origin clash against New South Wales, meaning he'll be free to play for the Warriors .

They'lll face a Wests Tigers side buoyed by a 17-16 golden point extra-time win over Newcastle, a result which has pushed them up to seventh, two behind the Warriors.
