Two changes to Warriors line-up

10:45 am on 13 March 2013

The Warriors coach Matt Elliott has made two changes to the starting line-up for the side's first home match of the National Rugby League season on Saturday night against the Sydney Roosters.

Winger Manu Vatuvei is out with an ankle injury he suffered in the season opening loss to Paramatta and is expected to miss the next three games.

He's replaced by Bill Tupou.

In the other change Steve Rapira comes into the starting line-up in the second row with Feleti Mateo dropping to the interchange bench.
