And for one of them the match will have extra meaning with 2009-2012 Vodafone Warrior Lewis Brown lining up against his former club for the first time.


The other Kiwi Test players named by former Vodafone Warriors coach Ivan Cleary are fullback Dean Whare and prop Sam McKendry.


Former Vodafone Junior Warrior Matt Robinson, an NRL squad member in 2011, is on the bench. He made his NRL debut in his first season with the Panthers in 2012.
