Hurrell's been out since picking up a hamstring injury in the first half of the Warriors' win over the Raiders three weeks ago.

Coach Andrew McFadden's also reshuffled his pack with Ben Henry shifting back to the second row, Sebastine Ikahihifo named at lock and Jayson Bukuya dumped to an extended bench.

Ben Matulino has been moved into the front row in his 150th game, pushing Suaia Matagi to the bench.

The match against the 2013 champions is shaping up as a crucial one for the Warriors as they sit in eighth place on 26 points with three games remaining.
