A reshuffle is on the cards for the Warriors.

Bunty Afoa and Peta Hiku return to the 17 for Sunday's NRL match against the Dragons, after suspension and injury absences respectively.

They replace Eliesa Katoa and David Fusitu'a, the latter of which has a hamstring injury expected to sideline him for a few weeks.

For Katoa, the 21-year-old second rower made his debut for the Warriors in March last year against the Newcastle Knights, after coming from a rugby union background.

Coach Nathan Brown says he's young, and people forget he hasn't played many league games.

"Just dropped back to the Q Cup to play whether it's one game or two or three games, to work on a couple of small things in that competition. That's what the Q Cup's there for and that's where most young blokes learn their trade."

Josh Curran also comes into the second row.
