One change for Indigenous Round encounter
Author Richard Becht

Mason Lino will start at halfback in the only change to the playing 17 named for the Vodafone Warriors’ NRL Indigenous Round clash against the Sydney Roosters at Mount Smart Stadium on Saturday (5.00pm kick-off; match day sponsor: Canterbury of New Zealand).
Lino comes in for Shaun Johnson, whose ankle injury prevents him making his 150th career appearance against the same side he faced in both his debut in 2011 and his 100th game in 2015.

The 24-year-old Lino will make his fourth appearance of the season after previously filling the position against the Roosters, North Queensland and Melbourne.

Johnson has been omitted after being forced off the field in the 70th minute of the 26-4 win over Wests Tigers but the other two senior players who were injured – hooker Issac Luke and loose forward Adam Blair – have both been listed.

Luke was forced off with a shoulder injury in the 55th minute while Blair left the field with an ankle complaint after returning from the bench for his second stint.

“Adam is fine and will play,” said Vodafone Warriors head coach Stephen Kearney.

“We gave Issac every chance to play last week after injuring his knee against Melbourne and he came through. Once again, we’ll give him every opportunity this week.”

There’s one change on the extended bench with utility Jazz Tevaga (shoulder) back after he was unavailable last week.

The second-placed Vodafone Warriors face another stern examination this week with the Roosters sitting sixth on the ladder after going to a 5-4 record with their 22-20 victory over Manly last Sunday.

When the two sides met in the fourth round the Roosters, who came into the season as one of the premiership favourites, fell to a 6-30 loss at Allianz Stadium.

Since then the Roosters have beaten Cronulla 28-10, lost to South Sydney 14-26, had a 6-0 win over Canterbury-Bankstown, lost to the Dragons 8-24 and accounted Manly.

The Vodafone Warriors have had an identical win-loss-win-loss-win sequence in their last five matches against North Queensland, Brisbane, St George Illawarra, Melbourne and the Tigers.

The Vodafone Warriors have fashioned a solid record against the Roosters. This will be the 40th contest between the two sides with the Vodafone Warriors boasting a 22-1-16 win-draw-loss record. The only two current sides they have had a better run against are Gold Coast and South Sydney.

In 18 meetings at Mount Smart Stadium, the Vodafone Warriors have won 12 and lost six. They have had a sequence of four consecutive victories home and away since 2016.
solid team, if luke is out i would bring tevaga onto the bench. i just dont rate same cook. i also hope the mannering papalii switcheroo happens pre kick off too.

No ones complaining about Kearney's cut and paste selections this week aye.

Sensible move sticking with Lawton over past Loyalty towards Jazs Stirling efforts.

Mannering back where he was hmm on paper at least...ah well if you owe anyone the beneifit of the doubt it is him.

You would doubt Luke will play really, unless he has another medical miracle there is no need at this stage to risk him...I get why they are giving him the chance though.

Happy for Lino that the story doesnt end with that Storm game, I am sure he learnt a lot from it.

Look out for Lino Roger Tuivasa-Sheck...cover his back in defence man.

Roosters disputing the grading on Radleys charge. I hope he gets off and we smash em full strength.

yeah much as these guys fire their own up, guys like Paasi and Gavet like it a bit tasty...that would keep everyone awake the whole game.

You just have to hope buggers like this dont take out your key players with an illegal hit...the rules are all arse get sent off for being offside but maim someone and its on report play on.
The one that really pisses me off is leg trips being a fine only.

Leg trips can cause horrific injuries just shows lawmakers have little understanding of the game in both codes.
Team as expected, hope Lino steps up rather than getting the Storm game Lino
1-17 looks pretty solid but would be less confident if Luke was out and presume Cook onto the Bench
