Via Warriors Media

Bunty Afoa has been brought in to replace regular run-on prop James Gavet for the Vodafone Warriors’ final regular season NRL clash against Canberra at Mount Smart Stadium tomorrow night (8.00pm kick-off).

Gavet was ruled out at today’s final field session paving the way for Afoa to start for the first time since the 10th round in what will be his 43rd career appearance.

With Afoa starting, Leivaha Pulu is now listed among the four players on the interchange.

Hooker Karl Lawton is the other player to drop out of the 21-man squad originally named on Tuesday.
