Issac Luke and Isaiah Papali’i will make their first NRL appearances of the year for the Vodafone Warriors after being included in the final 17 for Sunday’s clash with the Wests Tigers in Sydney.

Veteran Kiwi hooker Luke makes his return to action after off-season shoulder surgery and will start at hooker.

Nathaniel Roache, who impressed at hooker in last week’s win over the Bulldogs, will sit out Sunday’s game at Campbelltown, the coaching staff opting to rest him due to calf tightness.

Papali’i, meanwhile, has been named to start on the bench alongside Jazz Tevaga, Sam Lisone and Leeson Ah Mau.

The final match of round two in the NRL Telstra Premiership kicks off at 8:10pm (NZT).
