Warriors name unchanged team for Canberra match

7:34 am on 28 July 2011

The Warriors have named an unchanged lineup for Sunday's National Rugby League match against Canberra to that which thrashed South Sydney at the weekend.

The win in Sydney moved the Warriors into sixth and on Sunday in Auckland they'll be chasing a fourth straight win.

Canberra's upset win over the defending champions St George Illawarra lifts the Raiders to 13th with 16 points, still with a chance of making the finals if they win their remaining six regular season games.

In their last three matches the Warriors have beaten Gold Coast 22-6, Canterbury-Bankstown 36-12 and the 48 points they scored against the Rabbitohs is their highest total since beating Brisbane 48-16 in the third round last season.

It's also the first time they've scored nine tries in a match since beating Newcastle 52-10 in July, 2007, while winger Manu Vatuvei's hat-trick makes him the club's leading try-scorer with eight in 11 matches.
