Auckland, New Zealand, April 23, 2012 - Pita Godinet and Glen Fisiiahi have been included in a 19-man squad for the Vodafone Warriors’ eighth-round NRL match against the Storm at AAMI Park in Melbourne on Anzac Day (Wednesday). Head coach Brian McClennan said the pair had been added as cover for Kiwi internationals Manu Vatuvei and halfback Shaun Johnson.

Vatuvei and Johnson, both feeling the effects of Friday night’s 12-20 Anzac Test loss to Australia, didn’t train with the Vodafone Warriors yesterday but have both been named to start in the traditional Anzac Day match against Melbourne.

Brought back into the team travelling to Melbourne later this afternoon is fullback Kevin Locke, who has recovered from the leg injury which kept him out of the Vodafone Warriors’ last three matches against the Sydney Roosters, Canberra and South Sydney. He replaces Jerome Ropati, who is out of contention for the Michael Moore Trophy duel after being forced off the field with a hamstring injury 47 minutes into the 44-22 victory against South Sydney on April 15.“We’re hoping Manu and Shaun will be right to play on Wednesday night but we’re taking Glen and Pita as cover,” said McClennan.
