Trio selected to take on Knights
AuthorRichard Becht Tue 30 Apr 2019, 03:03 PM

Captain Roger Tuivasa-Sheck , Blake Green and David Fusitua have all been selected for the Vodafone Warriors’ eighth-round NRL clash against the Newcastle Knights at Mount Smart Stadium on Sunday (4.05pm kick-off).
Green has missed the last three games against South Sydney, North Queensland and Melbourne while Tuivasa-Sheck and Fusitua were both ruled out of the Anzac Day battle against the Storm.
Vodafone Warriors head coach Stephen Kearney is hopeful all three will come through training this week to take their places against the Knights.
Not selected is utility Jazz Tevaga, who was forced off the field with a leg injury after playing just 14 minutes against Melbourne.
With Tuivasa-Sheck, Green and Fusitua named, Kearney has switched Peta Hiku back to left centre, Tohu Harris returns to the second row and Gerard Beale goes to the bench. Retained at right centre is Patrick Herbert following his impressive debut last week.
There’s a positional switch in the starting forward pack. Isaiah Papalii remains as an edge forward with the seasoned Adam Blair providing experience on a bench which also includes hooker Nathaniel Roache and prop Bunty Afoa. Blair heads into this weekend’s encounter just four games short of joining the NRL’s 300-game club.
The four additional players on the extended interchange are standoff-halfback Hayze Perham, centre Solomone Kata and middle forwards Ligi Sao and Chris Satae.
The Vodafone Warriors and Newcastle are both on four points after seven rounds, the Knights 11th with a points for and against differential of minus 22 while the Vodafone Warriors are 12th with a differential of minus 24.
In 39 matches between the two clubs, the Vodafone Warriors have won 20, the Knights 18 with one draw. The Vodafone Warriors have won the last six contests at Mount Smart Stadium since losing 19-24 to the Knights in 2012.
The NRL fixture rounds out a packed game day programme which features Vodafone Warriors teams lining up against the Sydney Roosters in the opening round of the inaugural NRL Touch Premiership. The women’s match starts at 12.05pm while the men’s contest begins at 12.45pm.

I actually like the look of that team ... Watch SK gimp it up massively with a ‘surprise inclusion’ of S. Kata at the expense of Herbert and ‘shock’ all of us by starting Blair

Blair on the bench? Cool, at least he's heading in the right direction......then again, do team lists really mean anything? Wait to see what happens match day.

Not hugely but generally the starting 13 is locked in, just the makeup of the bench.

So I'll be expecting Roache, Kata, Beale and Blair hahahahahaha

Yeah it will be Herbert’s turn for compassionate leave this week lol finally a team naming that sits ok with most on here.

Really happy to see Herbert in starting lineup (as I think 99% of fans are) but can't held but feel that at the last minute SK will say "Sol has recovered well from his injury (yeah right) and will be slotting back in to the starting lineup".

Otherwise... great looking team. Would like to see Sao come in for Beale, but his inclusion makes sense given we've got a few banged up backs.

i know this is an unpopular opinion here but id rather burr come off the bench the way he runs and his offload (when used in the right situation) could be deadly against some tiring forwards

Great team! Is Beale in the 17 as an insurance policy for Green/RTS? Would prefer Sao/Satae/Pulu in for Beale but it's such a welcome change to have a decent balanced starting and bench named on Tuesdays.

Holy Klokstads, Kearney has been reading the forum it seems.

Don't mind Beale on the bench as insurance for Roger, and Kakariki. One of them is bound to have a moment, so makes sense.

My love for Kearney just went up 0.27% this week. Keep it up mate.
