Te Whare winging it for Panthers

Valynce Te Whare will start on the wing for the Dolphins in their match against the Penrith Panthers at Kayo Stadium this afternoon.

Te Whare has been preferred to Tesi Niu, who drops out of the squad.

Anthony Milford has been promoted to  five-eighth after producing a game-breaking display in the second half of last week’s win over the Titans.

That will push Isaiya Katoa back to the interchange list where he will provide cover for both the halves and starting hooker Harrison Graham.

And in another late change, Mark Nicholls will start in the front row, with Kenny Bromwich going to the bench.

The match kicks off at 4.05pm.
