Experienced NYC players Adam Tuimavave-Gerrard, Sam Lisone and Metia Lisati return for the Vodafone Junior Warriors’ second-round encounter with the St George Illawarra Dragons at Eden Park on Saturday (2.45pm kick-off).

 

Tuimavave-Gerrard and Lisati both come off the injured list, Tuimavave-Gerrard names on the bench and Lisati on the wing.

 

Also selected is prop Sam Lisone. He played all 28 NYC matches last year but was used in the Vodafone Warriors’ New South Wales Cup side against Wentworthville last weekend.
