NEW ZEALAND WARRIORS
New Zealand Warriors suffered a controversial defeat at the hands of Parramatta to place a huge dent in their bid to make the play-offs and now face a very difficult task against an in-form Canberra side.
The Warriors had hoped hooker Issac Luke could overturn a grade-two dangerous throw charge but instead he was slapped with an extra game and must sit out the next three contests.
He is still listed in the side for the Warriors but will likely be replaced by Karl Lawton whilst Kodi Nikorima is back at five-eighth after overcoming his ankle injury which sees Chanel Harris-Tavita revert to the bench and Adam Keighran dropping out of the 17.
Starting 13: Tuivasa-Sheck, Beale, Hiku, Ayshford, Maumalo, Nikorima, Green, Paasi, Luke, Ah Mau, Blair, Papali’i, Tevaga
Canberra were too good for Penrith ahead of their much-anticipated contest as the Raiders consolidated their spot in the top 4 and continue to shape as one of the teams that can claim the premiership.
The Raiders are on the verge of welcoming back the likes of Ryan Sutton and Luke Bateman but this week has come too soon for all of their injured troops with none of them even named amongst the reserves.
Head coach Ricky Stuart has named an unchanged 17 this week after such a solid display at Penrith but Hudson Young is back in the mix having been named in the reserves following his ban for eye-gouging.
Starting 13: Nicoll-Klokstad, Simonsson, Croker, Oldfield, Rapana, Wighton, Sezer, Papalii, Hodgson, Soliola, J. Bateman, Whitehead, Tapine
