Big guns named for Warriors trial against Dragons Written by STAFF WRITERS, February 16, 2016

THE Warriors are set to unleash both their star recruits this weekend with Issac Luke and Roger Tuivasa-Sheck named for Saturday’s trial against the Dragons in Nelson.

Joining Luke and Tuisasa-Sheck in the squad is fellow recruit Jeff Robson and star halfback Shaun Johnson, meaning it will be the first time fans get to see the club’s new-look spine on the field.

“It’ll be exciting having the chance to see our new spine in action for the first time,” coach Andrew McFadden said.

“Issac had his first hit-out against Gold Coast in Whangarei after missing the NRL Nines and now we have the chance to put the combination of our spine players together.

“As well as those four players we have nearly all of our front-line players available for what is a really important trial for us.”

The match will kick off at 5:00pm (NZ time) at Trafalgar Park.
