NSW Cup Preview: Vulcans v Wyong Roos

NSW Cup Preview: Vulcans v Wyong Roos

Wellington, New Zealand, May 11, 2013 – Vodafone Warriors centre Dominique Peyroux makes his return from a broken jaw today when he lines up for the Auckland Vulcans in their New South Wales Cup encounter with the Wyong Roos at Westpac Stadium in Wellington today (3.10pm kick-off).

The match is the first leg of today’s rugby league triple header, the finale being ‘The Capital Clash’ NRL contest between the Vodafone Warriors and Canterbury-Bankstown (7.35pm kick-off; match day sponsor: Vodafone).

Aucklander Peyroux joined the Vodafone Warriors after playing 16 NRL games for the Gold Coast Titans.

After being used in preseason trials against his old Gold Coast side and Penrith, he started the season proper with the Vulcans only to be sidelined after breaking his jaw in a training collision in March.

Today he starts his campaign again as he seeks to put himself in contention for an NRL call-up for the Vodafone Warriors.

He’s paired in the centres today with fellow Vodafone Warrior Ngani Laumape, who has distinguished himself with five strong NRL performances in his rook year. With veteran Manu Vatuvei returning last week, Laumape had no game time last week as he filled the 18th man role for the clash against Gold Coast at Mount Smart Stadium.

The Vulcans go into this weekend running seventh in the competition with three wins, four losses and a draw. Wyong is in last place, its side including Wellington-raised Arana Taumata.
