New signing Henare Wells will make his Vodafone Warriors and Nines debut when he lines up in today's final Hunua Pool clash against Brisbane (kick-off 12.40pm) at the Downer NRL Nines at Eden Park.

Wells, the only player in the squad not used yesterday, has been named in the starting side.

The run-on combination again includes Ryan Hoffman, Ben Matulino, Blake Ayshford, Shaun Johnson, Roger Tuivasa-Sheck and Johnathan Wright.

Also back for the vital encounter with the Broncos are Sam Lisone and Jeff Robson.

On the bench are Jacob Lillyman, Solomone Kata, Tuimoala Lolohea, Konrad Hurrell and Nathaniel Roache.

Not selected are Charlie Gubb, Albert Vete, Ata Hingano and Ken Maumalo.

Victory over the Broncos will take the Vodafone Warriors through to the quarter-finals. If Manly beats Canterbury-Bankstown in the preceding pool match, the Vodafone Warriors could even advance with a loss by up to 14 points against Brisbane.
