Pauga returns from ACL injury

Junior Pauga is in line to make his first appearance for the Vodafone Warriors' Intrust Super Premiership side this year after being named for Saturday's clash with the table-topping Mounties at Mount Smart Stadium.

Pauga, who suffered an ACL injury during last year's ISP finals series, will start in the centres while Ligi Sao (Toa Samoa) and King Vuniyayawa (Fiji Bati) have also been named to play after making their respective representative debuts last weekend.

The Vodafone Warriors will head into the match in fifth place on the ISP ladder.

Kick off is at 3pm and entry is free to all patrons through Gate B.
