* Teenage Kangaroos star Sione Mata’utia has been chosen as 18th man on an extended bench with Joey Leilua named in the starting lineup for the Newcastle Knights clash with the Warriors on Saturday. Although missing a spot in the 17, Mata’utia, who became Australia’s youngest ever Kangaroo last season, is still a chance of playing against the Warriors and could force his way onto the bench later in the week. It appears more likely however that he will now start in either NSW Cup or Holden Cup.
* The Warriors have named FOUR potential SuperCoach cheapies in Tuimoala Lolohea, Solomone Kata, Sam Lisone and Albert Vete.
