Albert Vete during a Vodafone Warriors training session at Mt Smart Stadium

Albert Vete and Charlie Gubb come into the starting line-up in the only changes made for the Vodafone Warriors’ final NRL trial against Gold Coast at Palmerston North’s Central Energy Trust Arena today (2.00pm kick-off).

Jacob Lillyman and Sam Lisone were originally named as the run-on front rowers but head coach Stephen Kearney has moved them to the interchange.

Lillyman will have his first run of the preseason while Lisone was involved in the NRL Auckland Nines and also played for the NRL All Stars last week. Vete and Gubb were both used in last Saturday’s trial against Melbourne.
