Kata and Lolohea return to face Tigers
Solomone Kata and Tuimoala Lolohea both return for the Vodafone Warriors’ 25th-round NRL contest against Wests Tigers at Mount Smart Stadium on Sunday (4pm kick-off).
A hamstring injury kept the 21-year-old Kata out of Saturday’s clash against the North Queensland Cowboys while Lolohea turned out for the club’s Intrust Super Premiership side against the Mounties in Auckland.
Kata was missing from the line-up for only the second time in 46 matches since his NRL debut last year and the first time through injury.
The club’s top try scorer with 14, he ranks sixth equal among all NRL players so far this season and is averaging 116 metres a game.
Lolohea returns for his 47th first-grade game replacing right wing Ken Maumalo, who was forced off the field with a hamstring injury after just 17 minutes of the North Queensland encounter.
The rest of the line-up named today is unchanged from the one used in Townsville with Ata Hingano on a five-man bench after becoming Vodafone Warrior #214 on Saturday.
