Lino should get selected just so he has experience to cover for injuries next year. He cant do any worse than what has been happening.... or can he:hungover:

Lino seems to be developing quite nicely in nsw cup under Stacey, I don't see the point in sending up to first grade to play in a team playing badly and destroying his confidence when in another year he could be of fringe 1st grade standard. Better to let chad be run over by tamalolo Scott and tamou.

This is why Lino will not be brought in and nor should he be.

Building towards a finals campaign within a team playing well and confident at NSW Cup level is more useful to his development than getting thrown into a team lacking confidence and experience for a first grade debut where there's a high chance we'll get smashed. Lino will make bugger all difference to first grade and won't learn/develop anything of substance compared to what he'll learn in these next couple of months (hopefully with a deep finals run) in NSW cup.

Playing 2 games for the first grade team wont destroy his development, it will be a taste of what he may have to do next year
 
Only scanned through the team list article. I wasn't expecting Rapira to play after the knock he took last week. But suspended after the little amount of time he spent on the field along really shows our luck at the moment. If he doesn't make first grade again and with the stage of the season we are at he may not. It will be a real sad way to end his Warriors career.
 
As the Cowboys set their sights on a maiden minor premiership the Warriors aim to rescue something from a season which promised so much but ultimately looks set to deliver so little.

Following back-to-back losses to the Sharks and Rabbitohs nothing but victory will do for North Queensland this Saturday night at Mount Smart Stadium, particularly if they are to keep alive their hopes of edging out the Broncos and Roosters for the top spot.

They have just one change for the trip to Auckland, with Coen Hess set to make his NRL debut from the bench and John Asiata starting in the place of the injured Gavin Cooper.

The hosts on the other hand have a number of changes for the second week in a row, having lost even more experience with Sam Rapira copping a one-game suspension for a dangerous throw in last week's 24-10 loss to the Panthers.

Rookie Albert Vete starts in his place, while Bodene Thompson comes back into the squad via the bench.

In the back row Raymond Faitala-Mariner drops back to the NSW Cup, with Sione Lousi starting in the No.11 jersey.

Watch out Warriors: Last week the Warriors faced a poor quality Panthers team and still hardly managed to fire a shot. The Kiwi team were allowed to run for over 1600 metres, get away 17 offloads and were up against an opponent who missed 39 tackles on the night, yet apart from a three-minute patch where they scored all 10 of their points Andrew McFadden's men had little to show for it.

Mount Smart Stadium has in the past been a venue teams hated to visit, with the Warriors always being that little bit harder to beat there. That is simply not the case in 2015, with the Kiwi side winning just five games at their home ground so far. If they lose to the Cowboys on Saturday night it will be their worst home record since season 2012.
 
Sounds like we get our wish...

Chad Townsend is set to be left out of the Warriors team to play against the Cowboys on Saturday and replaced by Mason Lino.

The 21-year-old will make his NRL debut and slot into the halves next to Tuimoala Lolohea as Townsend has an injury.
