No late changes for the Vodafone Warriors as they confirm they'll line up 1-17 for their NRL Multicultural Round encounter with the Wests Tigers at Campbelltown Sports Stadium in west Sydney tonight (6.00pm kick-off local time; 8.00pm NZT).

Kodi Nikorima coming in at halfback for the injured Ash Taylor is the only change to the side which lost 18-20 to Gold Coast last Saturday.

Jack Murchie is confirmed the replacement player (18th man) with Murdoch-Masila named reserve.

Both players were on the extended bench for last Saturday's encounter with Gold Coast but weren't included in the reduced squad of 19 so they could be released to build up some match time for feeder club Redcliffe in the Hostplus Cup (Queensland Cup).

This is the Vodafone Warriors' first match in Sydney since meeting Cronulla Sutherland in round 17 at Jubilee Oval in Kogarah last July.

The five players the Vodafone Warriors dropped out of their expanded squad were Taniela Otukolo, Pride Petterson-Robati, Valingi Kepu, Junior Ratuva and Edward Kosi.
