Warriors skipper Roger Tuivasa-Sheck in doubt to face Melbourne due to injury

Warriors could be without their skipper Roger Tuivsas-Sheck for Thursday's ANZAC Day match against the Melbourne Storm after sustaining a hamstring injury.

The New Zealand team named Tuivasa-Sheck at fullback for the match against the Storm, but with rookie Hayze Perham named on the bench suggests the Warriors skipper could be in doubt to play at AAMI Park in Melbourne.

Warriors' star winger David Fusitu'a has already been ruled out of the match due to a rib injury.

Fusitu'a has been replaced by Gerard Beale on the wing, with Peta Hiku named to start at centre with Blake Green expected to return to the halves with Chanel Harris-Tavita.

The Warriors are in 10th place on the NRL ladder after securing just two wins so far in the season after six rounds.

Warriors: Roger Tuivasa-Sheck (c), Gerard Beale, Peta Hiku, Solomone Kata, Ken Maumalo, Chanel Harris-Tavita, Blake Green, Agnatius Paasi, Issac Luke, Leeson Ah Mau, Adam Blair, Tohu Harris, Lachlan Burr.

Interchange: Jazz Tevaga, Isaiah Papali'i, Bunty Afoa, Nathaniel Roache. Extended bench: Hayze Perham, Leivaha Pulu, Patrick Herbert, Chris Satae.
