Mannering, Luke and Sao into line-up for trial

Simon Mannering, Issac Luke and Ligi Sao come into the starting line-up for the Vodafone Warriors’ second and final NRL trial against Gold Coast at Sunshine Coast Stadium in Kawana Waters tonight (5.00pm kick-off local time, 8.00pm NZT).

All three were listed on the bench when the squad was announced on Tuesday but Mannering starts in the second row, Luke at hooker and Sao at loose forward.

That sees Sam Cook and Leivaha Pulu moving to the bench.

Bunty Afoa, originally named at loose forward, hasn’t travelled. He has been replaced by Isaiah Papali’i, who is on a 10-man bench.
