Prop Jacob Lillyman and second rower Ukuma Ta'ai return from injury while halfback Brett Seymour earns a recall for the Warriors against Melbourne Storm next Monday.

Minor injuries ruled Lillyman and Ta'ai out of last Saturday's loss to Manly but they have both been cleared to reclaim their places in the squad after featuring in the preceding wins against Cronulla and Sydney Roosters.

Seymour, who has been playing for the Auckland Vulcans in the NSW Cup over the last three rounds, comes back at halfback while James Maloney moves to five-eighth, with Feleti Mateo returning to the second-row.

Lillyman starts at prop again while Ta'ai is among five players named on the interchange bench alongside Alehana Mara, Ben Matulino, Russell Packer and Jeremy Latimore.

With Shaun Berrigan sidelined for six weeks due to a broken left hand, Lewis Brown has been moved into the centres while Joel Moon was not considered after suffering a hip injury playing for the Vulcans last weekend.

Berrigan and Moon have joined a growing injured list which includes Manu Vatuvei, Jerome Ropati, Glen Fisiiahi and Steve Rapira.
