Warriors utility Tui Lolohea still figures in his side's long-term plans.

Lolohea to fullback for Warriors

Tuimoala Lolohea returns to the Warriors' starting line-up at fullback with David Fusitu'a moving to the centres for the Harvey Norman Women in League encounter with the Penrith Panthers at Mount Smart Stadium on Saturday.

The Round 21 NRL Telstra Premiership clash will be preceded by a women's curtain-raiser between the Akarana and Counties Manukau sides both laden with Kiwi Ferns (12.40pm kick-off local time) and the NYC contest between the Vodafone Junior Warriors and the table-topping Penrith side (2.40pm kick-off local time).

The 21-year-old Lolohea is back at fullback after being on the bench in recent weeks while Fusitu'a, who has been filling the custodian's role lately, takes over on the right edge from experienced Blake Ayshford.

After starting in the centres in the first 18 matches of the campaign, Ayshford moves to the bench this week.

In the only other change to the starting line-up, Ben Matulino will partner fellow veteran Jacob Lillyman with James Gavet, who started last week, on the interchange with Ayshford, Sam Lisone and Jazz Tevaga.
