Matulino back, Lolohea to fullback
Ben Matulino returns from suspension and Chad Townsend has been recalled for his last game for the Vodafone Warriors when they face Canterbury-Bankstown in Sunday’s 26th-round NRL match at ANZ Stadium (6.30pm kick-off local time; 8.30pm NZT).
Matulino has been sidelined since August 8 after being banned for three games for a shoulder charge on St George Illawarra’s Gareth Widdop in Wellington.
Townsend has missed the Vodafone Warriors’ last two matches but returns for his 41st and last game for the club before returning to Sydney to rejoin his former club Cronulla. He has been named to partner rookie Mason Lino, who will wear the No 7 jersey in his third NRL game.
While Townsend is set to make his final appearance, fullback Sam Tomkins seems...
WIN A SIGNED JERSEY COMP!!!
Been a hard time being a fan lately. Thought Id start a comp to cheer this place up. I have a signed 2015 away jersey in XL spare in my collection and one of you sorry sacks is going to win it. Its got everyone on it. About 30 players including those that have already left or leaving.
Competitions simple. Pick your winner and score for the 2015 Round 26 Eels vs Raiders game.
Why that game? Even odds on that game and dont want to make loyalists choose against our team. You'd have to admit a betting man would bet on the Doggies and thats the last thing I wanna see .
Thread will be locked within an hour of kickoff Sunday 6th September 2015 4:00pm (AEST) 6:00pm (NZST).
Must name winning team and score eg Warriors 50-16
Same team and score between...
Wests Tigers 50 vs 16 New Zealand Warriors
Man of the Match?
How did Mason Lino go?
How did Tuimoala Lolohea go?
Dominique Peyroux go ok at centre?
Matt Allwood on the wing?
Sebastine Ikahihifo at prop?
Konrad Hurrell come back with the desired effect. Centre or in the pack?
Did the bench have the desired effect?
Anyone go to the game? How was the stadium?

NRL 2015 - Rnd 25 - Tigers vs Warriors Gameday Chatter
Wests Tigers v New Zealand Warriors
Sunday, 2.00pm (AEST) 4:00pm (NZST)
This week the Tigers signalled a changing of the guard and potentially the start of a new era, but will that translate into anything different on the field when they tackle the feeble Warriors this Sunday?
Up to their eyeballs in a battle to avoid the wooden spoon, coach Jason Taylor made the decision to tell captain Robbie Farah that he is free to look for a new club next year, one of the biggest calls in the joint venture's history.
In Round 25 they face a Warriors team who are ripe for the taking, heading into the game on a six-match losing streak and without nine frontline players through injury or suspension.
Despite their 40-18...
Nathan Friend has been an outstanding servant of our club over the years, and our win loss record without him playing is pretty poor.
But he is 32 and showing some signs of fatigue.
And we do have 3 international hookers in our squad sitting behind him in the pecking order. Is that justified?
Ben Henry is in outstanding form atm, making 40 tackles against the Raiders...
TL has played some huge games at hooker and is considered to be our team leader by many...
Havili is an outstanding young talent with a huge NRL future in front of him...
All of them are more dominant defensively than Friend, and all of them have better passing games...
Friends main point of difference is his exceptional professionalism and never say die attitude, but after his performance v the sharks it might...
