The Warriors will welcome back key players Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, Blake Green and David Fuistua for Sunday's NRL clash with the Newcastle Knights in Auckland.

Skipper Tuivasa-Sheck and Fusitua return to the starting side, after missing the Anzac day loss to Melbourne, while Green seems to have overcome the groin injury that forced him out of the last three rounds.

After his impressive debut against the Storm, rookie centre Patrick Herbert has done enough to earn another start in the centres, where he'll partner Peta Hiku.

With Green now on deck, coach Stephen Kearney has also shifted Tohu Harris back to the second row and Gerard Beale goes to the bench.

In the forwards, Isaiah Papali'i remains as an edge forward. with the seasoned Adam Blair taking to a bench that also includes hooker Nathaniel Roache and prop Bunty Afoa.

Utility Jazz Tevaga has been ruled out of the match, after he was forced from the field early in Melbourne with a leg injury.

Solomone Kata, who missed the last round on compassionate grounds, has been added to an extended interchange, alongside Hayze Perham, Ligi Sao and Chris Satae.

The Knights currently sit one spot above the Warriors in 11th on the NRL ladder and are coming off a comprehensive win over the Parramatta Eels.

The New Zealanders have a strong home record against the Novacastrians, having won their last six contests at Mt Smart.
