    Shaun Johnson has been named to make his 150th NRL milestone appearance in the Vodafone Warriors’ 14th-round clash against Manly Warringah at AMI Stadium in Christchurch on Saturday (5.00pm kick-off).

    The 27-year-old has been stalled on 149 games since an ankle injury picked up in the 70thminute of the club’s 26-4 win over Wests Tigers in Auckland on May 5.

    After scoring his 61st career try in the victory, Johnson was then forced to miss the last three outings against the Sydney Roosters, Parramatta and South Sydney.

    With his seventh appearance this year, the club’s record points-scorer (825 points) will become the 12th member of the Vodafone Warriors’ 150-game club having made his debut against the Roosters in 2011 and his 100th against the same opposition in 2015.

    Johnson’s return results in Peta Hiku being switched back to the centres while there are two changes among the forwards.

    After starting in the 10-30 loss to South Sydney, Simon Mannering goes back to the bench while 19-year-old Isaiah Papalii has been named to start in the second row. Ruled out for the next three weeks is utility Jazz Tevaga (shoulder) which sees Karl Lawton remain on the interchange. The four players included on the extended bench are Gerard Beale, Mason Lino, Sam Lisone and Ligi Sao.

    The Vodafone Warriors go into the match lying fourth on the ladder on 18 points, two behind Penrith and St George Illawarra. With an 8-4 win-loss record, it’s the first time since 2011 that the Vodafone Warriors have begun the second half of a season with more wins than losses (and only the second time since 2002).

    While the Vodafone Warriors are coming off as bye, the Sea Eagles were in action last week, going down 12-26 to North Queensland a week after losing 20-21 in extra time to Canberra the previous round. Those results belied the form which saw them beat the Brisbane Broncos (38-24) and the Melbourne Storm (24-4) in rounds 10 and 11.

    Vodafone Warriors | 150 APPEARANCES

    288 Simon Mannering (2005-2018)

    Hoping for a return to fitness and form from SJ, Luke, Harris and maybe a surprise from someone else (Pulu too much to ask for....).

    Get the feeling we need a solid win here.

    Yip we lose here and our season will likely go completely off the rails. We need to win and then back it up with a good away win against the cowboys.

    This is a must win game if I ever saw one and we've got 2 massive mental hurdles to overcome.
    Firstly Manly, no matter who the have playing for them or how they're traveling, absolutely have the wood on us. I think we've only beaten them twice in the last 10 years!
    Secondly our record in NZ away from Mt Smart is appalling!
    Good news is this should be close to a full strength line-up with the exclusion of Pulu.

    Here's hoping SJ can inject some leadership and enthusiasm coz Captain Marvellous will be tired from watching his Mrs change nappies from down at the pub.

    Liking it.

    1-17 is exactly the team I would've named.

    That bench with Lawton, 2 proper props, and Juju immediately gives that whole team a better balanced look to it. Props to sub props, Mannering to sub Blair at lock, Lawton covers everything else.

    Great looking team there can't be too disappointed with that at all. Looking forward to the game.

    Is this the first time all season we've named our full strength spine with Lawton at utility?

    Good to see a side that makes sense, I take it Lawton won't be doing the Tevaga middle forward role because no doubt the coaches are aware the blueprint to beating us now is to role us through the middle.

    Expecting a big Manly side Taupau, AFB, Lloyd Perrett, Sipley

    thats our best team possible at the moment (while Pulu is injured), Beale or Hiku is a coin toss. id probably prefer Beale but i understand Hiku's selection

    No complaints.

    Nice and settled looking line up.

    Pretty much our winning squad.

    Spotlights on Lawton, Mannering, and Papalii...maybe even Hiku or to a lesser extent Kata.otherewise every one else is a shoe in of late.

    Liking the way they make changes after big losses.

    I wouldn't count your chickens....It would not surprise me one little bit to see them change things on game day.
