Maori residents to take on Auckland clubmates
Four Warriors have been named in the 21-strong New Zealand Maori Residents squad that will prepare for a match against Auckland in Rotorua.
Coach Ricky Henry says whether James Bell, David Bhana, Sam Cook or Jared Tua run on to Puketawhero Park on May 30 will depend on whether they are selected that week.
He says there is a good mix of experience and younger players, with New Zealand Maori Rugby League making an investment for the future.
The fixture will tie in with the National Youth Tournament, where there are 20 teams competing.
Point Chevalier’s Dylan Moses will captain the side, which includes all but two players from Auckland clubs.
