Loose forward Jazz Tevaga is poised to make his long-awaited return after being named on the interchange for the Warriors’ NRL game against Gold Coast on Friday night.Jazz Tevaga celebrates his try.

The 24-year-old hasn’t played since the club’s last match of the 2019 campaign against the Canberra Raiders.

He has now fully recovered from offseason ankle surgery and a calf strain picked up in Tamworth which further hampered his comeback plans.

Captain Roger Tuivasa-Sheck returns at fullback from a one-match suspension, Peta Hiku moves back into the centres and Gerard Beale is switched to the extended bench.

The other notable change sees the club’s 2019 NRL rookie of the year Chanel Harris-Tavita named to partner Blake Green in the halves, coming in for Kiwi international Kodi Nikorima who has been ruled out after leaving the field with a head knock last week.
