Ten months since his last game, Kieran Foran is set to make his NRL return after being named on an extended Warriors bench for Sunday night's away clash with St George Illawarra.

The five-eighth has not played since May due to a season-ending shoulder injury during an ill-fated Parramatta stint and personal issues.

He was cleared by the NRL to make his Warriors debut last round but was ruled out with the shoulder complaint.

The Warriors - who have also welcomed back skipper Roger Tuivasa-Sheck (concussion) - will be tempted to inject Kiwi international Foran after slumping to a 1-2 season start.

Cronulla named ex-Penrith rake James Segeyaro in their 21-man squad for Saturday's match against Parramatta before his contract had been registered officially.

Segeyaro was cleared to train with the Sharks just last week, as the club and the NRL negotiated a release from English side Leeds, where the hooker was still contracted for another two seasons.

Segeyaro finished the 2016 Super League campaign with Leeds but failed to return from Australia for pre-season training in the UK, citing homesickness.

Eels playmaker Corey Norman (hamstring) returns for the clash.

Penrith back-rower Bryce Cartwright (ankle) is back for Friday night's home game against Newcastle.

For injury-ravaged Gold Coast, Dale Copley will make his Titans debut - along with ex-Brisbane winger Daniel Vidot - in Saturday's clash with North Queensland. The NRL had blocked him playing last week.
