Several changes including a debut for new signing Manaia Cherrington feature in the Vodafone Warriors’ line-up for today’s 14th-round Intrust Super Premiership encounter with Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles in west Sydney (1.00pm kick-off local time; 3.00pm NZT).

Ex-Wests Tigers and Cronulla hooker Cherrington will play for the club just three days after having his contract registered.

He has been included on the interchange while coach Ricky Henry has reconfigured his starting combination.

Ata Hingano was originally selected on Tuesday but drops out after turning out for the NRL side in yesterday’s 34-12 win over Gold Coast.

Everywhere man Sam Cook, who was named at hooker, switches to standoff (after also being used at fullback and wing in recent weeks). Jazz Tevaga comes off the bench to start at hooker and Charlie Gubb will run on at prop with Toafofoa Sipley going to the bench.
