A new round and a new venue but it was the same old Warriors that showed up against the Canberra Raiders in New Plymouth. I don't even know where to begin as I feel like I have been writing the same thing every week. Poor defense (30 missed tackles), silly penalties (10 in total), nonexistent attack and horrendous last tackle options. The Warriors lost 38-12 and to be honest they were lucky to have scored at all as they appeared clueless or even worse disinterested. Coach Andrew McFadden...
An extremely windy night greeted the Warriors when they travelled to AMI Stadium to face the Penrith Panthers in their Round 10 matchup.After the win in Round 9 and a week off due to the international window, the Warriors had time to let the dust from the dramas of the past few weeks settle and get all eyes focused back on the football.

After a tough fought win in Wellington the Warriors were looking at starting a run of form but right from kickoff the Warriors were on the...
The Warriors travelled to Westpac Stadium in Wellington for their Round 7 clash against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs. History has not been good for the Warriors in Wellington; however they did not let this affect them and came away with a hard-fought victory 24-20. In front of a crowd of just over 18,000 the Warriors managed to bully the Bulldogs forwards into submission early on, Ben Matulino showed that he was returning to form as he was continually hard for the defense to bring...
