Vodafone Warriors interim assistant coach Stacey Jones has stuck with the side he named for his first match in charge against the Sharks at Moreton Daily Stadium in Redcliffe tonight.

In what will be the club's second to last match before their Mount Smart Stadium homecoming, Jones has confirmed his line-up as selected.

He has chosen centre Jesse Arthars as the 18th man while back rower Eliesa Katoa is omitted.

Confirmation of the side means impressive second rower Josh Curran will come off the interchange in his return from the six-match injury-enforced layoff.

The experienced props Bunty Afoa and Dunamis Lui will be called on off the bench along with back rower Bayley Sironen.

The three players omitted last night from the original 22-man squad were prop Aaron Pene, hooker Freddy Lussick and halfback Ronald Volkman.

All three were released to play for Redcliffe in the feeder club's 34-32 Queensland Cup win over the Mackay Cutters last night.
