The New Zealand Warriors have taken a revised squad to Suncorp Stadium for their Magic Round clash with St George Illawarra on Saturday night.

The debut of former Bronco Kodi Nikorima – who returns to Brisbane just two weeks after calling it home – is a great opportunity for the Warriors to get some game time into their new five-eighth, but it comes at the cost of Chanel Harris-Tavita who has been dropped to the reserves.

Issac Luke is joining Harris-Tavita on the sidelines with Nathaniel Roache coming in at hooker, meaning coach Stephen Kearney is without both of his usual goalkickers.

Roar rugby league Expert AJ Mithen joined us on Friday’s episode of the Game of Codes podcast to give his take on the Warriors’ selections and debate who takes up kicking duties against the Dragons.
