Euan Aitken is ready to remind everyone why the Warriors brought him to the club after declaring himself a certain starter for Sunday’s NRL Magic Round clash against Parramatta.
One of the Warriors’ key off-season signings, the former Dragons centre played in the opening-round victory against the Titans before spending the next eight weeks on the sideline due to an ankle injury.
He was initially named on an extended bench by coach Nathan Brown, but Aitken revealed on Friday that he’s been moved into the run-on side to face the Eels at the expense of rookie winger Edward Kosi.
“I’ll be playing in the centres this weekend and really keen to get back out there,” Aitken said.
“The body is feeling pretty good now, I think I’ve come back at the right time. I’ve got a couple of weeks under my belt training with the team.”
It’s unclear who will replace Kosi on the wing, though either Adam Pompey or Rocco Berry appear most likely.
