Wing Ken Maumalo returns from suspension for the Vodafone Warriors' third-round Intrust Super Premiership encounter with Newtown at Mount Smart Stadium on Sunday (11.45am kick-off).

Also back in the side is Tomas Aoake at fullback with David Fusitu'a listed to partner Matt Allwood in the centres.

Albert Vete's promotion to the NRL squad results in Paul Tuli being brought off the interchange bench to start at prop while Raymond Faitala-Mariner is in the second row with captain Ali Lauitiiti switching to loose forward.

The Vodafone Warriors will seek a second successive win after trouncing Wests Tigers 44-6 last Saturday.

The Vodafone Junior Warriors will field an unchanged starting line-up in their third-round  NYC clash against Melbourne (1.45pm kick-off).

The only change to the side which lost 8-14 to Brisbane last Friday night is on the bench where Joseph Price has been named for his first appearance of the season.
