The Warriors have embraced the old adage of if it's not broken, then don't fix it - naming an unchanged team for the match against the Gold Coast Titans this weekend.

After beating the South Sydney Rabbitohs in Perth in round one, the Warriors will look to carry the momentum with them into their first home game of the season.

Young forward Isaiah Papali'i will have another chance to shine in the starting line-up with Simon Mannering still out due to injury.

"Simon's a week to week proposition," Warriors coach Stephen Kearney said. "We've just got to make sure we manage him pretty good. I'm doubtful he'll be ready for this week. He's a quick healer but we want to make sure we're doing the right thing and looking after him."


Papali'i put in an 80-minute performance in the team's round one win in Perth last weekend, and was rewarded with another berth in the No.11 jersey.

Papali'i was one of 11 Warriors to rack up more than 90 running metres against the Rabbitohs in Perth, as the side looked damaging with ball in hand.

"What we achieved in Perth was certainly pleasing after the players had worked really hard in the preseason," Kearney said.

"The result there brought a sense of relief and also a sense of confidence in the way the players went about executing the game plan.

"But for us it's now all about this week and preparing well to give us the best chance of performing well on Saturday."

First five-eighth Blake Green and centre Solomone Kata were named in the squad despite being absent from training on Tuesday due to illness, with Kearney expecting them to be fine for the weekend.
