In a move that will ignite fierce debate amongst Warriors fansNathan Brown has left wonder kid Reece Walsh on the bench for Sunday’s clash against the Parramatta Eels.

Brown has resisted the temptation to move the 18-year-old sensation into the starting side ahead of the Magic Round match in Brisbane despite a dire performance from his team with the whiz kid on the bench last week.

Sunday’s round 10 encounter will see the Eels’ Isaiah Papali’i – one of the form players across the NRL this season – go up against his former club for the first time.

Compounding the disappointing loss to Manly at the weekend is Tuesday’s news that centre Peta Hiku is out for the season with a shoulder injury after early reports suggested he would be back in the next couple of weeks.
