The Kiwi league centre Jerome Ropati is set to play his first game in nearly 11 months when the Warriors complete their pre-season program against the Queensland Cup side Sunshine Coast in Whangarei on Saturday.

27-year-old Ropati missed most of last year's NRL season after suffering a serious knee injury against St George Illawarra in round three in late March.
