Elliott names same team to take on Sharks

7:02 am on 31 July 2013

The Warriors head coach Matthew Elliott has had the rare luxury of being able to name the same line-up for the second straight week for Saturday's National Rugby League clash with Cronulla at Mount Smart Stadium.

The Warriors came through injury-free from Sunday's 30-22 win over last year's premiers the Melbourne Storm enabling Elliott to stick with the combination he selected last week.

Named again on the right wing is 20-year-old Ngani Laumape who doubled his career try tally with a brace inside the first 12 minutes of last Sunday's match.

The Warriors go into the contest in ninth spot on the ladder with the same points total (22) as eighth-placed Newcastle.

The Sharks are just two points ahead in sixth, one of three teams on 24.
