The Warriors have been further depleted for their NRL match with St George Illawarra, losing utility Thomas Leuluai to a hamstring injury.
Leuluai, who was named at five-eighth, is a late withdrawal from Sunday's clash in Auckland and has been replaced by Jeff Robson.
The 34-Test player Leuluai joins a Warriors casualty ward that includes fellow internationals Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, Simon Mannering and Tuimoala Lolohea.
The absence of Leuluai means six of the squad originally named against the Dragons will be missing.
Five others were dropped to reserve grade after being among six players disciplined for breaching club protocols following a late night out.
