Jacob Lillyman will be used from the bench in the Vodafone Warriors’ 13th-round NRL encounter with the Parramatta Eels at ANZ Stadium in Sydney tonight (7.50pm kick-off local time; 9.50pm NZT).

It will be the 33-year-old’s second match in 48 hours after playing 30 minutes for the Maroons in Wednesday night’s 4-28 State of Origin loss to New South Wales in Brisbane.

He will play his 179th NRL match for the Vodafone Warriors, joining Nathaniel Roache, Sam Lisone and Albert Vete on the bench.

The starting combination is as selected 1-13 as the Vodafone Warriors seek to back up their 28-10 success over the Broncos last Saturday night.
