Warriors name unchanged side for Panthers match

5:08 pm on 6 July 2010

The Warriors coach Ivan Cleary has named an unchanged 18-man squad for Sunday's 18th round NRL encounter with the table-topping Panthers in Penrith.

Lance Hohaia, who missed Sunday's home win over Parramatta, is listed to start at fullback.

Hohaia's stand-in Jerome Ropati returns to the centres and Lewis Brown, who scored twice in the 35-6 win over the Eels, is back in the second row.

Brett Seymour, Brent Tate, Jacob Lillyman, Sam Rapira and Kevin Locke remain on the injured list.

The Warriors are eighth after winning their last three games but they'll face a confident Penrith whose12-8 win over St George Illawarra last night has them sharing the lead with the Dragons.

The Panthers are on 26 points, six more than the Warriors after winning their last four matches.
