NRL TEAM NEWS | Peyroux on bench

Utility Dominique Peyroux and prop Albert Vete are confirmed on the interchange for the Vodafone Warriors' sixth-round NRL encounter - and Manu Vatuvei's 200th game - against Wests Tigers in front of a charged and expectant crowd at Mount Smart Stadium tonight (7.30 kick-off; game day sponsor: SKYCITY).

Dropping off the original five-man bench is Sebastine Ikahihifo who played against the Storm on Monday night, scoring his first career try in what was his 31st match.

Peyroux was on the bench but wasn't used in Melbourne while Vete was 18th man after playing the first four matches of the season.
