Despite a string of five straight losses the Warriors coach Stephen Kearney has decided against making wholesale changes to his side for Sunday's National Rugby League match against Canberra in Auckland.
Second rower Ryan Hoffman returns from six weeks on the sideline while Nathaniel Roache starting at hooker with the Kiwis international Isaac Luke dropped to the bench.
Hoffman last appeared in the 21-14 home win over Canterbury-Bankstown in June but a foot injury forced him to miss the Warriors' run of losses to Manly, Penrith, North Queensland, Cronulla and Newcastle.
The 33-year-old gives the side a 301-game injection of experience teaming up in the back row with the seasoned Simon Mannering and second-year NRL player Bunty Afoa.
It will be only Roache's third start in his 21 NRL games.
In his first game back from a hamstring injury, he was used in the second half of last Saturday's 10-26 loss to the Knights.
He began at hooker but spent the last 26 minutes on the right wing replacing the injured David Fusitu'a.
