Warriors winger Ken Maumalo is set to make his first appearance in 2016 against the Roosters in Round 15.

The Warriors have been forced to make two team changes ahead of their Round 15 NRL Telstra Premiership clash with Sydney Roosters at Mount Smart Stadium on Sunday.

Rookie prop Toafofoa Sipley is set to make his second NRL appearance, coming off the bench in place of Jacob Lillyman who has been called into the Queensland squad for Holden State of Origin II.

Ken Maumalo will replace Manu Vatuvei on the wing in what will be the 22-year-old's first NRL appearance for 2016. Vatuvei picked up a hamstring strain early in the second half of the Warriors' 50-14 win over Newcastle and is expected to be sidelined until at least Round 17.
