After last week’s pre-match disruptions, the Vodafone Warriors will take the field as selected for tonight’s SKYCITY Auckland Double Header clash against North Queensland at Mount Smart Stadium (7.30pm kick-off).

In the lead-up to their 30-6 win over the Sydney Roosters, the Vodafone Warriors had to overcome the dual setbacks of losing halfback Shaun Johnson and prop James Gavet to injuries.

Simon Mannering is confirmed on the interchange to make his first appearance of the season and the 281st of his career. He’s joined on the bench by Jazz Tevaga, Sam Lisone and Anthony Gelling.

Dropping out of the remaining six players on the bench are halfback Mason Lino and middle forward Ligi Sao.
