Warriors Get The Job Done

After a couple of back to back performances that were nothing short of embarrassing from the Warriors, the NZ based outfit turned up and put on a show for the fans at Mt Smart, albeit to an under strength Broncos outfit. That being said, you can only play the team that's put in front of you and it was crucial that they got the job done. Anything short of a victory would have put serious pressure on the club and no doubt would have completely stripped away any confidence the players may have still had left within them. As the Origin period roles around for another year, the Warriors find themselves in an all too familiar position. Yet ANOTHER slow start to the season leaving them behind the pack and desperate to string some wins together.

Round 7 vs Raiders - #Faither 5: Pre Game

The Rd 7 match vs the Raiders in Canberra this weekend looms as what could potentially be a season defining game for the Warriors. Although the NZ based side has come away with 5 wins from their previous 10 clashes against the Green Machine, alarmingly their record in Australia's National Capital is less than to be desired, with only 2 victories from their previous 5. Looking back further, the Warriors have struggled to adapt to the conditions at the Raiders home stadium where they went 13 years without a victory, stretching from 2001-2014.
