NSW CUP ROUND #2 | Team announcement

Dominique Peyroux returns from suspension and Nathaniel Peteru is back from injury in a Vodafone Warriors side showing some changes for Saturday’s second-round New South Wales Cup game against the Illawarra Cutters at Eden Park (12.40pm kick-off).

 

Peyroux will start in the second row and Peteru at prop while there are also more changes in the backline following last Saturday’s 24-38 loss to Wentworthville at Belmore Sports Ground.

 

Ngani Laumape was in the centres and David Fusitua on the wing in the opening round but they swap places against the Cutters. With Ben Henry moving onto the bench for the club’s NRL side, Carlos Tuimavave starts at standoff.
