The football didn't finish for the Vodafone Warriors after their clash against Melbourne Storm with the club’s Intrust Super Premiership side taking on Canterbury-Bankstown in their second-round clash at Mount Smart Stadium on Saturday (1.00pm kick-off).
Entry is free for Vodafone Warriors members and fans keen to see players with NRL experience fronting for both sides.
Isaiah Papali’I has been confirmed to start after experiencing his first taste of NRL footy as Vodafone Warrior #215 against the Knights last Sunday. Also lining up again will be veteran wing Manu Vatuvei and halfback Mason Lion. All three were named in the extended 21-man NRL squad on Tuesday.
Vatuvei impressed for the ISP side last week and Lino was outstanding, providing three try assists and converting eight of the Vodafone Warriors’ nine tries.
Seasoned centre Blake Ayshford will feature again while back rower James Bell is named after missing the 52-24 victory over the Knights due to injury.
The Bulldogs are entering round two off a 14-22 loss to the Mounties.
As well free entry (gates open at 12.45pm) through Gate B, car parking is also free in the main car park.
Due to stadium preparation, please note the D Zone will be blocked off. Spectators will be guided down the stairways and will be asked to sit in the Lower North East Stand. If wheelchair access is required, security will assist through Gate A.
