Regular skipper Monty Betham returns to the Warriors' starting line-up for this weekend's finals clash against the Bulldogs in Sydney.
Jerry Seuseu and Wairangi Koopu, both rested from the Wests' Tigers game with niggling injuries, also make their return to the side for this Saturday's match. These inclusions have seen both Tevita Latu and Iafeta Paleaaesina revert to a five man bench which will be finalised by Head Coach Daniel Anderson closer to kick-off.
Half-back Stacey Jones will take his place in the starting line-up despite some speculation to the contrary, having left the field before full-time against the Tigers for purely precautionary reasons. Second-rower Ali Lauitiiti will again start the match from the fresh reserves bench.

1. Brent Webb 2. Henry Fa'afiili 3. Vinnie Anderson 4. Clinton Toopi 5. Francis Meli 6. Thomas Leuluai 7. Stacey Jones 8. Jerry Seuseu 9. Monty Betham (Captain) 10. Richard Villasanti 11. Logan Swann 12. Awen Guttenbeil 13. Sione Faumuina
