Ben Matulino will start in his 200th NRL appearance and Charlie Gubb makes a return on the bench for the Vodafone Warriors’ 11th-round clash against St George Illawarra at FMG Stadium Waikato tonight (8.00pm kick-off).

In his milestone outing – his fourth game this year – Matulino is in the starting line-up for the first time in 2017.

He comes in for James Gavet, who moves to the interchange, while Gubb replaces Ligi Sao on the bench.

Gubb played the first seven NRL matches this year before having a stint in the Intrust Super Premiership.
