Henare Wells returns from injury to start on the wing with the experienced Jonathan Wright returning to the centres for the Vodafone Warriors’ 20th-round Intrust Super Premiership encounter with the Mounties at GIO Stadium on Saturday (12.40pm kick-off local time; 2.40pm NZT).

The Mounties and the Vodafone Warriors – along with Illawarra – are level on 28 points at the top of the ladder with the Mounties first on points for and against, the Vodafone Warriors third.

It’s the second road trip on end for the Vodafone Warriors following a grinding 24-22 win over Manly last Sunday.

The Vodafone Junior Warriors (10th) and Canberra (11th) are level on 18 points heading into their NYC clash at GIO Stadium (10.40am kick-off local time; 12.40pm NZT).

Centre Melino Fineanganofo and standoff Chanel Harris-Tavita come into the backline while experienced Marata Niukore returns in the second row.
