Mounties Coach Steve Antonelli has named his side for the match against the New Zealand Warriors on Saturday afternoon at Belmore Sports Ground in what is the first week of finals of the VB NSW Cup.  

The two sides versed each other just last week in what was the final round of the regular season, with Mounties coming away with an impressive 36-10 victory.

Strike centre Jeremy Hawkins returns to the team line-up after missing last week's win over the Warriors with the flu.

Whilst Hawkins returns, Mounties will be without Mitch Cornish, the competition's leading pointscorer, who has been recalled to the NRL.

With Cornish out, Josh McCrone shifts to halfback and Sam Duggan comes into the team at five-eighth.
