Hoffman returns for Warriors

Ryan Hoffman, Sam Rapira, Konrad Hurrell and Dominique Peyroux have all been called into the Warriors’ squad for Saturday night’s 23rd-round encounter with the Penrith Panthers at Pepper Stadium (7.30pm kick-off local time; 9.30pm NZT).

Hoffman is set for his first game since a calf injury forced him off the field only 22 minutes into the final State of Origin match in Brisbane on July 8.

The New South Wales back rower has missed the Warriors’ last five games against Melbourne, the Sydney Roosters, Manly, Cronulla and St George Illawarra. His last game for the club was against Canberra on June 27.
