Vatuvei in line to make his return for the Warriors

Manu Vatuvei is in line to make his return for the Warriors against the Rabbitohs this weekend.

The barnstorming winger has been included on a seven-man bench for Sunday's match at Mount Smart Stadium, along with Glen Fisiiahi who may return from bereavement leave after the death of his sister.

Fullback Kevin Locke, centre Dane Nielsen and utility Ben Henry have all been named in the side, despite picking up injuries in yesterday's win over the Cowboys.

Coach Matt Elliott says the entire team could change.

"To be completely honest with you, we come out of a review process and we have to get a team in on a Tuesday after playing on Monday.

"If I said a lot of thought went into that team I would be being dishonest with you, we just really stuck some names on a sheet of paper."

Matt Elliott says Jerome Ropati and Russell Packer are also in with a chance of playing despite their names missing from the side named.

Meanwhile Russell Packer and Carlos Tuimavave have been cleared to return from injury.

Neither have played this NRL season, with Packer nursing a bicep injury and Tuimavave breaking his hand in the pre-season.
