Montoya to start against Broncos

Fijian International and New Zealand Warriors winger Marcelo Montoya has been named to start against the Brisbane Broncos in round 22 of NRL tomorrow.

Marcelo had been playing at centre for a few weeks but now he has retained his original position.

He will start at left wing.

Remarkably the Warriors remain in the race for the top eight despite all the adversity that has been thrown their way in 2021.

Meanwhile, Dallin Watene-Zelezniak returns after serving a one-game ban and will chalk up his 150th career game.

Edward Kosi drops to the extended bench to make way for DWZ while Reece Walsh has been fined for contrary conduct after rushing into a melee against the Bulldogs and is thus free to continue his stellar debut season.

Jamayne Taunoa-Brown is promoted from the interchange to take the place of rookie prop Jackson Frei, who drops to the extended bench, while the return of Bayley Sironen pushes Jazz Tevaga to the bench.

The Warriors are aiming for four consecutive wins for the first time since 2018.

The Warriors will play the Broncos at 6.05pm tomorrow.
