Lolohea back in Warriors starting side

RNZ reports the move will appease many pundits and fans who've been critical of coach Andrew McFadden for picking the 21-year-old on the bench in their two recent losses.

Assistant coach Andrew Webster says Lolohea is primed for a big performance.

"Tui can play anywhere in the backline at a very high level. He's had plenty of experience at fullback in his short time in the NRL and I think he's going to be great for us, you saw what he did when he came onto the field for us late last week (in the golden point loss to Manly)."
