Vodafone Warriors head coach Stephen Kearney again has an unchanged line-up for today’s vital 23rd-round NRL encounter with the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium (2.00pm kick-off local time; 4.00pm NZT).

Anthony Gelling and Karl Lawton were omitted from the extended bench yesterday with Joseph Vuna and Chris Satae dropping off today.

That leaves the interchange the same as the one used in last week’s 20-4 win over the Newcastle Knights – Jazz Tevaga, Bunty Afoa, Leivaha Pulu and Peta Hiku.

With the Dragons beating the Wests Tigers last night, the Vodafone Warriors would seal a berth in the NRL finals for the first time since 2011 with victory – or a draw – in today’s clash against the Bulldogs.

A win would taken them to 30 points, six points clear of the ninth-placed Tigers with only two rounds to play in the regular season.
