Curran makes club debut tonight

Middle forward Josh Curran will become Vodafone Warrior No 238 after being brought onto the interchange for tonight’s 20th-round NRL clash against Canberra at Mount Smart Stadium (8.00pm kick-off).

The 20-year-old 2019 NRL rookie joined the Vodafone Warriors from the Sydney Roosters in late June having made his first-grade debut earlier this season against Melbourne.

He replaces Sam Lisone on the interchange.

There's a shuffle in the pack with Jazz Tevaga to start at hooker for the suspended Issac Luke while Lachlan Burr comes into the loose forward’s spot.

Added to the bench is hooker Karl Lawton with the other interchange players being prop Bunty Afoa and utility Chanel Harris-Tavita.
