Vodafone Junior Warriors coach John Ackland recalled some players used earlier in the season when originally naming his squad for Saturdays sixth-round NYC match against the Raiders at Canberra Stadium (5.15pm kick-off local time; 7.15pm NZT).


While retaining 16 of the 17 players used in the 46-14 trouncing of South Sydney, Ackland listed seven players on the bench including Eric Newbigging, Lafu Feagaiga and Ken Maulmalo plus potential debutant winger Esera Esera.


Newbigging, Feagaiga and Maumalo each made two appearances so far this year but werent involved in the match against the Rabbitohs.


Set to have their sixth consecutive outings of the 2013 campaign are fullback Ngataua Hukatai, wingers Viliami Kaveinga and Viliami Lolohea (although the latter has also been listed to play for the Auckland Vulcans this weekend), centre David Fusitua, halves Tuimoala Lolohea and Mason Lino, front rowers Albert Vete and Sam Lisone, hooker Michael Sio and second rower Raymond Faitala-Mariner.
