Hurrell and Lousi to be named

Centre Konrad Hurrell (pictured) and interchange forward Sione Lousi will both be named later today for the Vodafone Warriors’ third-round NRL clash against North Queensland in Townsville on Saturday night.

 

While he hasn’t indicated the line-up yet, head coach Matthew Elliott has confirmed the duo will be in the squad leaving Auckland on Thursday for the difficult trip to take on the Cowboys.

 

Hurrell has turned out for the Vodafone Warriors in the New South Wales Cup the last two weeks, picking up the players’ player of the day award after last Saturday’s 12-12 draw with Illawarra at Eden Park. He scored 25 tries in 37 NRL appearances in 2012 and 2013.

 

Lousi made his 32nd career appearance in the first-round clash against Parramatta but was on bereavement leave last week after his grandmother passed away.

 

Along with Hurrell, Lousi featured in the Vodafone Warriors’ trials against Gold Coast and Brisbane as well as the NRL Nines at Eden Park.

 

Watch out on www.warriors.co.nz for the full squad later this afternoon.
