Tuivasa-Sheck and Lawton to start for ISP side

The Vodafone Warriors will be without leading try-scorer Lewis Soosemea when they face the St George Illawarra Dragons in Saturday’s seventh-round Intrust Super Premiership match at Mount Smart Stadium (3.00pm kick-off).

Soosemea, who leads all scorers with seven, is suspended resulting in Johnny Tuivasa-Sheck coming into the line-up.

Also into the run-on side is new signing Karl Lawton, who starts at hooker after being on the bench last week.

The Vodafone Warriors lie seventh after their 34-4 win against the Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles last week but are just two points off the lead, the Dragons being one of four teams sharing top spot on eight points.
