Reinforcements have arrived at the right time for the Vodafone Warriors for their 14th-round New South Wales Cup clash against Wyong at Mount Smart Stadium on Saturday (5.40pm).

Last week centre David Fusitu’a made his return from a groin injury and this week outside back Matthew Allwood and regular captain John Palavi are making comebacks from their ankle injuries.

Allwood has been named in the centres against Wyong while Palavi is down to start in the front row.

The Vodafone Warriors are coming off a heavy loss to Canterbury-Bankstown but still sit fifth on the ladder.

Wyong is third on the table with the same number of points as the Vodafone Warriors after beating Newtown last week. Named to line up for the Roos are former Vodafone Junior Warriors Omar Slaimankhel and Abraham Papalii.
