Several late line-up changes have been made for the Vodafone Warriors’ Intrust Super Premiership week one finals clash against the Penrith Panthers at UOW Jubilee Oval in Sydney today (4.00pm kick-off local time; 6.00pm NZT).

Mason Lino, originally named at halfback, has been called up to the club’s NRL side to join Ata Hingano in the halves to replace the injured Shaun Johnson and Kieran Foran.

That sees Kane Telea named alongside standoff Sam Cook in the ISP side although fullback Zac Santo is expected to come into the halves with Telea moving to fullback.

Also on duty with the NRL squad for its match against Wests Tigers is wing-fullback Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad; he’s replaced on the right wing by Semisi Fotu.

Manaia Cherrington, named at hooker originally, moves to the interchange while second rower and captain James Bell will start at hooker and Daniel Palavi starts in Bell’s place on the edge.

The match will be streamed live on www.nswrl.com.au and on the NSWRL's Facebook page.
