HIKU TO HALVES AS LINO WITHDRAWS

Via Warriors Media

Versatile Peta Hiku is set for his third different playing role in as many games when the Vodafone Warriors face the South Sydney Rabbitohs in tomorrow’s 12th-round NRL match at Mount Smart Stadium (7.30pm kick-off, match day sponsor: SKYCITY).

He started in the centres in the 10th-round loss to the Sydney Roosters and was then switched to fullback for unavailable captain Roger Tuivasa-Sheck in last Friday night’s encounter with Parramatta.

Now he has been named to play in the halves against the Rabbitohs tomorrow replacing halfback Mason Lino, who has tonight been ruled out with a leg injury. His move sees Gerard Beale, who made his club debut against the Eels last week, again switched from the extended bench to start in the centres.
