Johnson and Hurrell Out, Lolohea Starts

  • Johnson and Hurrell Out, Lolohea Starts

Shaun Johnson and Konrad Hurrell are the notable absentees from the Warriors squad named to take on Cronulla in their round 22 clash at Mt Smart Stadium.

Johnson misses his third game in a row due to a groin injury, while Hurrell is out after picking up a hamstring strain against the Raiders.

The exclusion of Hurrell sees young gun Tuimoala Lolohea get his first start. Lolohea got some good minutes against the Raiders and made his mark with a try-saving tackle and a pretty pass to set up Ngani Laumape. Lolohea will start on the wing (he made appearances on the wing and at fullback against the Raiders) with Laumape moving to centre in place of the missing Hurrell.
