Standoff Ata Hingano makes his comeback from an injury lay-off for the Vodafone Warriors’ 22nd-round Intrust Super Premiership encounter with Wyong at Morry Breen Oval on Saturday (3.00pm kick-off local time; 5.00pm NZT).

It’s his first match since a leg wound forced him off late in the home win over Illawarra on July 9.

He’s back in the halves with captain Mason Lino for the third-placed Vodafone Warriors’ meeting with the eighth-placed Wyong Roos.

Following their third and final bye last weekend, the Stacey Jones-coached side is on 30 points, level with Illawarra with both teams six points adrift of the Mounties.

Also back in the side is Jazz Tevaga after being used off the bench with the NRL side in recent weeks.

Meanwhile, the Vodafone Junior Warriors will be seeking to back up their impressive 30-28 win over competition leader Penrith when they face Gold Coast on Sunday.

The Vodafone Junior Warriors are 11th on 20 points two ahead of Gold Coast but still four points off eighth spot.
