The Warriors are packing their bags for the fifth time in 18 months - but coach Nathan Brown's looking at the positives.

The Kiwi NRL club is relocating to the Gold Coast today for the remainder of the season.

Brown says some people in New South Wales can't go to work with the Covid-19 lockdown, so his team are grateful to be able to play rugby league and get paid for it.

He told D'Arcy Waldegrave there's also not much to complain about when it comes to the living on the Gold Coast.

"There's a lot worse spots to get shipped to."

The team have named their side to take on the Panthers on Sunday - but question marks still hang over some players.

Centre Euan Aitken and forward Josh Curran have been included in the initial 22, after missing the last two games as they were isolating for 14 days.

Half Chad Townsend and forward Tohu Harris, who are each recovering from shoulder injuries, have also been named in the reserves.

Coach Nathan Brown says Aitken and Curran need to take part in a few more team trainings, while Harris and Townsend need to pass fitness tests.

"We've got a fair bit up in the air at the moment."
