Warriors name team to play Bulldogs

VODAFONE Warriors Jerome Ropati and Louis Anderson will make their 50th first-grade appearances in Sunday?s NRL clash against the fourth-placed Bulldogs at Telstra Stadium. The two 21-year-olds again line up in a Vodafone Warriors side that?s been all but unchanged since starting a four-match winning streak against the Roosters on June 11. The only change during that spell has come about through captain Steve Price?s State of Origin commitments but they finish for the season tomorrow night when he and his Queensland team-mates face New South Wales in the series-deciding third match at Melbourne?s Telstra Dome. In his absence, the Vodafone Warriors picked up maximum points against Wests Tigers, the Roosters and Penrith while Ruben Wiki was stand-in captain. ?There have been a lot of pleasing aspects lately and one of them is the fact we have been able to win each time Steve was out of the side,? said head coach Ivan Cleary. ?That?s a reflection on the contribution every player has made but we?re also really fortunate to have a leader of Ruben?s ability when Steve?s not there. ?Now Steve?s set to return on a permanent basis, which can only help us at a time when we?ve able keep such a settled side together.? Sunday?s match provides personal milestones for Ropati and Anderson, the former making his debut in 2003 and the latter early in the 2004 season. ?For young players they have done extremely well and they?re certainly showing signs of developing to the next level,? said Cleary. Anderson has crammed in an extraordinary amount of top-level football for a player who turned 21 only a week ago. Besides eyeing his 50th outing for the Vodafone Warriors he has also played 13 tests for the Kiwis already. If the clash at Telstra Stadium will have meaning for Ropati and Anderson, it will also be a special occasion for Price who will play in front of a Bulldogs crowd for the first time since leaving his old club after the 2004 season. In fact, this will be the first time the Vodafone Warriors have played the Bulldogs in Sydney since winning 48-22 in the 2003 finals. That match was the fourth leg of a five-match winning run for the Vodafone Warriors. After beating the Roosters, Newcastle, South Sydney and Penrith in the last four rounds, the Vodafone Warriors can make it five on end again this weekend but Cleary?s more interested in the quality of the performance than the statistics. ?We won but won ugly against Penrith last weekend,? he said. ?It?s not a case of thinking about five in a row when we take on the Bulldogs. For us it?s all about putting together a much-improved overall performance.
