New Zealand Warriors head coach Stephen Kearney has named an unchanged 17 but has included David Fusitu’a on the extended bench for Friday night’s sixth-round NRL clash against the South Sydney Rabbitohs at Bankwest Stadium (6.00pm kick-off local time; 8.00pm NZT).

Fusitu’a remained in Auckland for personal reasons when the team travelled to Australia on May 3 to go into quarantine in Tamworth.

His inclusion is the only change to the 21-man squad named today. He comes in for Hayze Perham, originally named in the centres for the encounter with North Queensland before making way for the returning Peta Hiku, the hat-trick hero in the 37-26 win.
