Entry is free to the Vodafone Warriors’ Intrust Super Premiership match against the Newcastle Knights at Mount Smart Stadium #2 on Saturday (12.00pm kick-off; gates open 11.30am).

Parking is also free via O’Rorke Road using parking area No 3. 

Spectators enter the ground via the east end.

A total of 11 players with NRL experience have been named this week as the Vodafone Warriors seek a second straight win after last week’s 30-12 away victory over North Sydney.

The squad includes club legend Ali Lauitiiti as well as three forwards – James Gavet, Jazz Tevaga and Albert Vete – who have all made NRL appearances this season.

Others with first-grade experience are centre Matt Allwood, wing Ken Maumalo, halfback Mason Lino, second rower Shaun Lane, loose forward John Palavi and interchange forwards Sione Lousi and Upu Poching.

Vete comes into the side after being in the NRL line-up in recent weeks while Lauitiiti returns after being 18th man for the first-grade team last weekend.
