Warriors prop Ben Matulino expects a massive battle in the middle against the Titans.

Warriors name team for Anzac clash

Warriors coach Stephen Kearney has named an unchanged line-up for his side's eighth Anzac Day match against the Melbourne Storm.

Ben Matulino's comeback from a knee injury moves a step closer with his inclusion in the extended 21-man squad for the traditional Anzac Day NRL clash at AAMI Park in Melbourne next Tuesday.

Matulino's inclusion in the reserves is the only change from the 21-man squad initially named for last Saturday's clash against Canberra. He joins Nathaniel Roache, Charlie Gubb, Ligi Sao, Sam Lisone, Bunty Afoa, Ata Hingano and Mason Lino on the extended bench.

"Ben's getting closer," said Kearney.

"He has been making good progress since returning to full training and should be ready to play soon."
