Confirmed line-up: Fonua-Blake cleared to return

Prop Addin Fonua-Blake is a confirmed starter for the Vodafone Warriors in their Redcliffe farewell match against the Penrith Panthers today (5.30pm kick-off local time; 7.30pm NZT).

Fonua-Blake passed all tests this week to return in his familiar role for the 15th-round encounter at Moreton Daily Stadium.

After missing the last three matches with a foot injury, he starts with Bunty Afoa moving back to the bench for his 99th appearance.

Josh Curran will switch to the edge with captain Tohu Harris coming into the middle.

The confirmed bench is Afoa, Chanel Harris-Tavita, Dunamis Lui and Bayley Sironen. Eliesa Katoa is 18th man and Rocco Berry 19th.

Omitted last night from the original extended squad were prop Aaron Pene, hooker Freddy Lussick and half Daejarn Asi. They played for feeder side Redcliffe in today's curtain raiser against the Central Queensland Capras, the match finishing in a 24-all draw with Vodafone Warriors winger Edward Kosi snaring three tries.
