Panthers change it up for Vodafone Warriors

Penrith head coach Ivan Cleary has shuffled his playing stocks for Friday night’s 10th-round NRL battle against the Vodafone Warriors at Panthers Stadium (6.00pm kick-off local time; 8.00pm NZT).

Regular first-choice wing Josh Mansour is out of the squad completely while New South Wales Origin prop Reagan Campbell-Gillard is listed as a reserve on the extended bench. Mansour has been replaced by Brian To’o and Campbell-Gillard by veteran Tim Grant.

Also out of the side used against the Wests Tigers last week is New Zealand-born fullback Caleb Aekins – on the extended bench – and centre Tyrell Fuimaono, who moves to the interchange with Waqa Blake returning after being stood down for the Magic Round. Dylan Edwards comes in for Aekins.

The hookers have been swapped with New Zealander Sione Katoa coming into the starting line-up and Wayde Egan moved to the interchange. Liam Martin returns to start at loose forward with Kaide Ellis on the bench.
