Warriors prop Jacob Lillyman says the Warriors are ready for their Round 13 roadtrip to Perth.

Queensland Origin prop Jacob Lillyman has been named as the only line-up change for the Warriors Round 16 NRL Telstra Premiership clash against the top-of-the-table Cronulla Sharks at Southern Cross Group Stadium in Sydney on Saturday.

The 32-year-old, 220-game NRL veteran makes his 12th Origin appearance in the second match of the 2016 series against New South Wales at Suncorp Stadium tomorrow night.

He has been named on Tuesday to start in the Warriors' much-anticipated encounter with the Sharks three days later.

Lillyman's inclusion in the line-up sees fellow senior prop Ben Matulino named on the bench with Albert Vete the other starting front rower, as he has been in the three consecutive wins over Brisbane, Newcastle and the Sydney Roosters in the last three rounds.

The 23-year-old led the Warriors' forwards with an impressive 138 metres from 14 runs in his 33 minutes on the field against the Roosters.
