Halfback Jeff Robson is set to make his first appearance for the Vodafone Warriors’ Intrust Super Premiership side in Saturday’s 10th-round clash against Penrith at Pepper Stadium (2.00pm kick-off local time; 4.00pm NZT).

Robson was named to play in the last outing against the Bulldogs but was subsequently promoted to the NRL side.

Ken Maumalo, Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad, Ata Hingano, Nathaniel Roache and Mason Lino are all in the side again after being on representative duty last weekend.

The Vodafone Warriors are running third in the competition on 12 points, just one adrift of second-placed Newtown while the Panthers are ninth four points back.

Meanwhile, the Vodafone Junior Warriors face a challenging assignment playing in the curtain-raiser at Pepper Stadium on Saturday.

They face a Penrith side which leads the competition having won eight of its nine games so far.
