Second rower-centre Joseph Vuna is set to make his NRL debut after being named on the Vodafone Warriors' interchange bench for tonight's eighth-round Anzac Day encounter with the Melbourne Storm at AAMI Park (9.00pm kick-off NZT).

The 19-year-old Otahuhu Leopards junior has been a regular for the club's Intrust Super Premiership side this season after coming up through the Vodafone Warriors' system.

He has mixed his ISP appearances between the centres and the second row. Vuna will become Vodafone Warrior #228 if he makes it on the field.

With Isaiah Papali'i replacing the experienced Tohu Harris (concussion), Vuna has been handed the vacant spot on the bench joining Jazz Tevaga, Sam Lisone and Albert Vete.
