    Club great Stacey Jones will have nine new faces in his Vodafone Junior Warriors side when he makes his NYC coaching debut in Sunday’s opening round clash against Parramatta at Pirtek Stadium (4.15pm kick-off local time; 6.15pm NZT).

    Among the new faces named in the 18-man squad are fullback Brad Abbey and forward Bunty Afoa, like Jones both St Paul’s College products.

    The other players in line for their first NYC appearances for the 2013 beaten grand finalists are wing George Edwards, standoff Nathaniel Roache, prop Jordan Baldwinson, second rower Matiu Love-Henry, loose forward James Bell and interchange forwards Semisi Tyrell and Mason Tonks.

    Also playing for the Vodafone Junior Warriors for the first time will be back rower Michael Ki, who was actually in Parramatta’s NYC squad last year, playing twice.

    The remaining eight players in the squad all have NYC experience with the Vodafone Junior Warriors, although only three players are backing up this week after playing in the 2013 grand final against Penrith (halfback Mason Lino, prop James Taylor and interchange forward Kouma Samson.

    Who is that guy, he (or maybe she) did a great job. Loved the straight reporting without the commentary.

    Eels in from Warriors mistake at kick off, they just watch the ball bounce over the dead ball line.

    Last try to Eels 44 - 24, sounds like our defense was very fragile, missed many one of ones and a lack of structure in our attack. Typically this how the juniors start every year so wouldn't panic this early.

    Would you believe , the Eels score one more with seconds left on the clock

    Quite worrying is that many of their tries were whole field efforts.

    50 - 24

    Experienced NYC players Adam Tuimavave-Gerrard, Sam Lisone and Metia Lisati return for the Vodafone Junior Warriors’ second-round encounter with the St George Illawarra Dragons at Eden Park on Saturday (2.45pm kick-off).

    Tuimavave-Gerrard and Lisati both come off the injured list, Tuimavave-Gerrard names on the bench and Lisati on the wing.

    Also selected is prop Sam Lisone. He played all 28 NYC matches last year but was used in the Vodafone Warriors’ New South Wales Cup side against Wentworthville last weekend.
