Confirmed line-up: Harris makes return from bench

Vodafone Warriors captain Tohu Harris will make his comeback from the bench in today's Magic Round clash against South Sydney at Suncorp Stadium in Sydney.

Named to start on Tuesday, he has been shifted to the interchange for his first match as captain and his first in 300 days since suffering an ACL knee injury last July.

His move sees Eliesa Katoa coming into the starting line-up after originally being left out of the side.

With Wayde Egan ruled out last night with a calf injury, utility Jazz Tevaga starts at dummy half in what will be his 99th NRL appearance.

And, after just four days with his new club, new signing Freddy Lussick is on the interchange as the back-up dummy half for his debut as Vodafone Warrior #270.

Lussick and his former Sydney Roosters teammate Ronald Volkman arrived in camp on Monday, Lussick signed for the rest of this season and Volkman until the end of 2025.

With a total of 11 NRL games for the Roosters and St George Illawarra, Lussick's first appearance for the club mirrors Daejarn Asi's two weeks ago when he came into camp from the Cowboys and had his first outing in his new colours just days later against Canberra.
