Warriors make changes for Anzac Day clash

11:56 am on 22 April 2014

Three changes have been made to the Warriors line-up for Friday's traditional NRL rugby league Anzac Day encounter with the Storm in Melbourne.

Chad Townsend returns at standoff after playing for the club's New South Wales Cup side the last two weeks, replacing Thomas Leuluai, who will miss the match after the groin injury which delayed his start to the 2014 campaign flared up.

Jayson Bukuya has again been named in the second row.

He was also named against Canterbury and St George before being ruled out due to a nagging foot injury.

In the third change second rower Feleti Mateo has been added to the interchange after spending the last two games in the New South Wales Cup.

The Warriors enter the match on the back of three straight losses, with the pressure already mounting on interim coach Andrew McFadden.
