Warriors Orange Peeler
Third win for Vodafone Junior Warriors

The Vodafone Junior Warriors overcame real adversity and a fast-finishing Melbourne side before completing a home-and-away double with their 36-28 win over the Storm in today’s eighth-round NYC match at Sunshine Coast Stadium.

Junior Pauga was forced off with injury after just 16 minutes, forcing coach Kelvin Wright to call on interchange back rower Joe Vuna to play the rest of the match on the wing.

And seven minutes later the Vodafone Junior Warriors were reduced to 15 available players after prop Bunty Afoa, their most experienced player, left the field after a head knock.

They survived the setbacks to record their third victory of the season – their first on the road – backing up a 30-16 triumph over the Storm at Mount Smart Stadium on March 20.

It has given them a 3-5 record to lift them to 11th on the ladder, just a win outside the top eight.

Today’s success was founded on a strong first half display when the Vodafone Junior Warriors scored four tries on their way to a 24-6 lead at the break. Koli Oneone, elevated from the bench to start in the centres, had a double while fullback Kane Telea and bench forward Kenese Kenese also crossed.

They played into a stiff wind in the second half but, after allowing the Storm to edge back to 12-24, a run of three unconverted tries through Lewis Soosemea, Erin Clark and Marata Niukore enabled them to jump out to a 36-12 advantage.

While Melbourne stormed home with 16 unanswered points it served only to reduce the margin of the Vodafone Junior Warriors’ victory.

Next up they face St George Illawarra at Mount Smart Stadium next Sunday. The 15th-placed Dragons meet the fifth-ranked Sydney Roosters at Allianz Stadium tomorrow.

Well done boys.

But the 28 points conceded is the Warrior disease.

How do we fix that ? (i dont care the much vaunted Storm jnrs with their week of bricklaying got bowled over worse by our runners......all I give a shit about is changing the entire clubs template).
 
Got my tickets to the game today and found out the under 20's aren't even playing. They have already played. I thought they always played before the first grade team. What the hell. Is that the usual now? Or why just Melbs. Anyone know?

Dragons too hot in NYC clash

St George Illawarra handed the Vodafone Junior Warriors a crushing 50-0 defeat in today’s ninth-round NYC match at Mount Smart Stadium.

The two teams had identical records (three wins, five losses) going into the contest but the home side couldn’t get its game going despite coming off a win against Melbourne last week.

The Dragons fired up immediately with two early tries to lead 10-0 before finding some resistance as the Vodafone Junior Warriors kept them in check until the final six minutes of the half.

The weight of errors and limited possession then told, though, as the Dragons bagged two tries to lead 22-0 at the break and then added five more in the second half to run away with it.
