Tuivasa-Sheck, Mannering named in strong Warriors' side for sudden-death playoff

Roger Tuivasa-Sheck and Simon Mannering have both been passed fit for the Warriors' NRL finals clash with Penrith on Saturday, while the duo of Blake Green and James Gavet both return to the starting side.

Mannering, 32, left the field shortly into the second half of Friday night's 20-16 win over the Canberra Raiders with a sternum injury, while captain Tuivasa-Sheck, 25, played on through an ankle injury.

Green replaces Mason Lino in the starting side, with the youngster having deputised in the halves during his absence, while Gavet was left out of last week's clash with the Raiders with an undisclosed injury.

The Warriors face the Panthers at Sydney's ANZ Stadium at 7.40pm on Saturday night.
