Maxigesic Recovery Report: Big names cleared

Two of the One New Zealand Warriors' biggest names Shaun Johnson and Roger Tuivasa-Sheck have come off the NRL injury list.

Johnson has been named to return at halfback in Saturday’s blockbuster clash against competition leader Melbourne at Go Media Stadium.

He has been cleared from the pectoral injury suffered in the round 10 loss to the Roosters.

And Tuivasa-Sheck is on the extended bench after recovering from the hamstring strain he picked up on the eve of the match against the Roosters.

While Tuivasa-Sheck has been included head coach Andrew Webster says he is likely to be kept back for another week as he builds up his reps in training.

The Warriors are now down to four players on their injured list. Centre Ali Leiataua and utility Paul Roache are the next two due to return in round 18 as they recover from ankle injuries.
