SEA EAGLES AND WARRIORS NAME SQUADS FOR CHRISTCHURCH CLASH
The Manly Sea Eagles and New Zealand Warriors have named their 21-man squads for their NRL Round 3 encounter at Rugby League Park in Christchurch.
The Warriors have named the same 17 that went down to Wests Tigers on Sunday, with Issac Luke again set to start at hooker.
The Sea Eagles – and fans watching the match – have received a significant boost with brilliant fullback Tom Trbojevic slated to make his first appearance of 2019. New Zealand and Tonga international Addin Fonua-Blake comes back from suspension in the front-row.
