An unfamiliar role for injured Warriors fullback Roger Tuivasa-Sheck.

Out for the season with an ACL injury, Tuivasa-Sheck's found himself in a mentoring role with youngsters David Fusitu'a and Ken Maumalo.

Still only 23 himself, he says it's something he's still trying to get his head around.

"I still see myself as a young guy a part of the group so it's pretty tough, but it's been cool. The boys are offering to listen and they're willing to take it in so I will tell them what I know."

Fusitu'a's been given his chance to wear the number one jersey in the absence of Tuivasa Sheck, who's been impressed with what he's seen.

"Just the way he attacks the ball and positioning himself. I know there's a few areas that he really wants to work on and I will help him point out a few things but proud of the way he's been going."

The Warriors have made just one change for Saturday's match against the Raiders, with Jacob Lillyman replacing the suspended Charlie Gubb.
