ISP and Jersey Flegg teams for 18th round

The Penrith Panthers will pose a stern challenge for the Vodafone Warriors in both the Intrust Super Premiership and Jersey Flegg Cup 18th-round matches at QBE North Harbour Stadium on Sunday.

The sixth-placed ISP side encounters a Penrith outfit sitting three points clear at the top of the table on a run of three straights wins.

And the Vodafone Junior Warriors, who lost 10-18 in a tough grind against the Eels last Saturday, face a Panthers team lying second two points off the pace.

The John Teina-coached ISP side let slip a good lead in going down 22-30 to Wentworthville last Saturday.

The Vodafone Warriors are showing some changes in their line-up named today with centre Anthony Gelling included on the NRL interchange along with second rower Joe Vuna. They’ve also lost Sam Lisone through suspension as well as exciting young interchange forward Tom Ale to injury.

With Lisone out, King Vuniyayawa is named in the front row and Jersey Flegg-eligible Preston Riki is selected in the second row. Coming into the centres for Gelling is former Vodafone Junior Warrior Francis Leger.
