Two milestones for Warriors as Lolohea returns

Jacob Lillyman and Bodene Thompson will deliver a double milestone moment when the Warriors host Canberra in Saturday's 16th-round NRL encounter at Mount Smart Stadium.

It will be the 200th career appearance for 31-year-old Queensland Origin prop Lillyman while Kiwi second rower Thompson will be playing his 100th first-grade match.

Sam Tomkins will wear the No.1 after being a late inclusion on the weekend, while the man he replaced, Tuimoala Lolohea, returns to the side on the wing in place of the injured Ken Maumalo (ankle). 

NSW Origin forward Ryan Hoffman and Lillyman return to the starting side and Albert Vete joins the 17, with Raymond Faitala-Mariner moving back to the bench and Seb Ikahihifo dropping out of the side.
