Veteran hooker Issac Luke and middle forward Lachlan Burr return to the bench for the Warriors’ 16th-round NRL clash against the in-form Newcastle Knights at McDonald Jones Stadium on Saturday. (Photo credit: Lex Wright).

The 32-year-old Luke comes in for Nate Roache, whose season has been tragically ended by an anterior cruciate ligament injury in his left knee suffered in Sunday’s 18-19 golden point loss to Penrith.

After featuring in the first 13 matches of the season, first-year Warrior Lachlan Burr was left out for the Penrith match to allow him to fully recover from a niggling hip complaint. He comes back into the 1-17 mix this week replacing Leivaha Pulu.

Prop Leeson Ah Mau, centre Peta Hiku and wing Ken Maumalo are now the only players who have appeared in every match this year.
