Prop Agnatius Paasi will be back on deck for the Warriors when they face the Melbourne Storm in the NRL this weekend.

Paasi missed the recent loss to the Broncos through suspension, but will start this weekend, with Bunty Afoa on the interchange.

He missed the game after taking an early guilty plea for a dangerous throw against Panthers' winger Brian To'o. 

Elsewhere, Adam Blair's been named to start at loose forward, with Lachlan Burr dropping to the bench.

Warriors coach Stephen Kearney says despite the names being on the team sheet, it might not play out that way come kick off.

He says Blair played his best game of the year against the Broncos and it's the best fit for them this week that he moves to the lock role.
