A Storm Is Coming...

The Warriors looking to build on last weeks win this week to pull out a shock victory against an in-form Storm outfit.
  1. The big news surrounding the Warriors game this weekend is that star signing, and New Zealand fullback, Roger Tuivasa Sheck will be missing for the rest of the season. Tuimoala Lolohea will play his third position in as many games by moving to fullback - whilst coach McFadden has opted to use veteran Tommy Leuluai, over fellow veteran Jeff Robson, in the halves. Fan favourite Konrad Hurell misses out again, raising speculation over his future at the Warriors.
    The last time these two met, the Storm came away with the spoils. The Warriors will be looking to take the spoils this time round!

    Special Mention

    New Zealand Warriors: Tuimoala Lolohea
    Tuimoala Lolohea gets the mention this week. Just how good is this kid? – Played on the Wing, Standoff and now Fullback, Tui is showing his versatility. Personally thing his best position is 6 and could produce a perfect partnership with Johnson if given the time. But with RTS out, he’s staking a claim at Fullback to widen his options for the NZ national team. Look out for him!
