Vodafone Warriors fullback Roger Tuivasa-Sheck has been ruled out of this week's Harvey Norman League All Stars match after picking up a calf strain during the Downer NRL Auckland Nines at Eden Park.

Tuivasa-Sheck had been named at fullback for the World All Stars in Saturday’s clash against the Indigenous All Stars at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane.

Earlier this week Vodafone Warriors captain Simon Mannering withdrew from the All Stars to remain at home to support his partner Anna after the birth of the couple’s second son.

It was confirmed last night that Vodafone Warriors centre Konrad Hurrell had been called into the World All Stars to replace Tuivasa-Sheck while back rower Ryan Hoffman had been brought in earlier for Mannering.

Hurrell and Hoffman helped the Vodafone Warriors to the Downer NRL Auckland Nines final yesterday. They’re scheduled to fly to Brisbane today.
