Cleary may yet tinker with Warriors starting lineup

1:32 pm on 24 September 2011

The Warriors coach Ivan Cleary says his side's still feeding off the positive energy of last week's dramatic win over West Tigers, ahead of the National Rugby League preliminary final against Melbourne.

The Warriors only managed to get past the Tigers with a last minute try to Krisnan Inu to set up a Grand Final qualifier in Melbourne.

There are no injury problems for the Warriors ahead of the game, but Cleary's refused to rule out making some last-minute adjustments to his starting lineup.

In past weeks, he has benched forward Feleti Mateo and prop Sam Rapira while giving experienced utility Lance Hohaia a run from the outset.
