Just-signed front rower Dunamis Lui will make his club debut from the bench in the Vodafone Warriors' Indigenous Round encounter with the Newcastle Knights at Redcliffe’s Moreton Daily Stadium today (3.00pm kick-off local time; 5.00pm NZT).
He moves onto an interchange which also includes hooker Taniela Otukolo and middle forwards Bunty Afoa and Aaron Pene.
Eliesa Katoa moves out of the 17 to be 18th man while centre Jesse Arthars is the 19th man.
The 32-year-old Lui makes the Vodafone Warriors his fifth NRL club in what will be his 170th career appearance.
After playing for Brisbane, Manly Warringah, St George Illawarra and Canberra, the one-time Queensland State of Origin prop signed with the Vodafone Warriors’ feeder side Redcliffe in the Queensland Cup this season.
Lui becomes Vodafone Warrior #271 and the third player in recent weeks to make his debut with the club within days of coming into camp.
The first was standoff Daejarn Asi who made his first appearance as Vodafone Warriors #269 against Canberra the week he was signed from the North Queensland Cowboys.
Two weeks later former Sydney Roosters hooker Freddy Lussick became #270 against South Sydney days after he was signed.
Omitted from the extended bench late yesterday were standoff Daejarn Asi, centre Rocco Berry, halfback Ronald Volkman and middle forwards Pride Petterson-Robati and Jackson Frei.
