Not even 13, its 12- us taking a home game to Magic Round was just balanced out by the Tigers bringing one to Hamilton
Complete bullshit, but not at all surprised.
They have back loaded a lot of our home games to the end of the year rather than just spread them out evenly, I guess as an excuse for more Sydney clubs not taking games to NZ during the FIFA World Cup..
Can't blame the NRL for Wellington hosting the opener though, thats on Warriors admin.
What the hell are they thinking taking there opening game to Wellington?
I understand the desire to play around the country but they should be trying to rebuild/reward akl based members. Opening home game should have been at Mt Smart, take a different match to Welly.
I'm South Island based so don't benefit from games being in Akl. Just don't get why we are adding additional travel/time away from home when the boys finally get ro play at home. One home game in Wellington would have been OK, but don't know why we are heading to Hawkes Bay
Well that's next season off to a great start.
So what were the Warriors brainstrust doing while all this was being planned. Obviously not looking after their homebase.
Hells bells where's Richard Fale & his rich listers now coz we need some muscle & the current lot just don't give a rats arese. rant over..... for now
Unless we can bring back Walsh for one a last hurrah as a Warrior I'd bet on the Broncos as he was always good for a shocked face and a bad captains challenge. He had the kicks off out on the full sorted as well.
Mind you Kevie probably did his homework and revoked his kick off duties.
