The Vodafone Warriors launched a series of community and promotional appearances in Hamilton lastonight ahead of the club’s NRL trial against Penrith at Waikato Stadium on Saturday, February 16 (4.00pm kick-off).

An advance party of experienced first-graders Nathan Friend, Jacob Lillyman and Elijah Taylor plus former Vodafone Junior Warrior Charlie Gubb travelled to Hamilton to support sponsors Vodafone and Canterbury of New Zealand at in-store appearances at Te Awa, The Base Shopping Centre in Te Rapa.

Vodafone Warriors members and fans flocked in to meet the players, get autographs and pose for photographs.

The visit was the forerunner to more activity later next week leading up to the Vodafone Warriors’ first game in Hamilton since their 2009 trial against Melbourne (with the Vodafone Junior Warriors playing a Waicoa Bay Selection in the curtain raiser).

School visits, a Hamilton City Council event and in-store promotions with sponsors dtr and Canterbury of New Zealand will feature when another group of Vodafone Warriors travels to Hamilton early next Friday morning (February 15).

The playing squad for the match against the Panthers is due to arrive in Hamilton at 12.30pm the same day before having a final team run at Waikato Stadium at 4.00pm.

The Road Warrior, the Vodafone Warriors’ modified Suzuki Swift, will arrive in Hamilton early on Saturday morning ahead of a match day breakfast being put on by NewstalkZB. The radio station will broadcast its regular Saturday morning sports show live from the breakfast, devoting its 8.00-9.00 hour to the Vodafone Warriors’ visit. Head coach Matthew Elliott, Ruben Wiki and two Vodafone Warriors players will be there to mix with breakfast guests and to be interviewed about the trial.

After breakfast Vodafone Warriors players will be involved in a Community Roots Carnival at Waikato Stadium before gates open for the trial matches.

Don't worry - Ivan will find some secondrowers to play as centres and a prop or two to play on the wing :D

Thanks for listing this. Interesting team, what to make of his selections. Who is really on trial here? Is Fish out of favour being listed so far down the team sheet. No Lowrie for this week so Ben Henry has a huge opportunity to put him under pressure from the very beginning.

Love the back line; interested to see how Mateo plays in 13 and how Taylor fills that hooking role. Is Peyroux possibly our next full back cover?

I'd say plum will get a satart ahead of masoe- plums a dead set hitman.

On our side I'm a bit disappointed Fusitua is not getting another run- I reckon he's got the goods

That's a fast backline my friend! In fact it's probably the fastest in the NRL!

1. Whare
2. Naiqama/Tighe
3. Roberts
4. Mansour
5. Robinson
6. Coote
7. Humble

Argh Elliot...Taylor at hooker. piss off


At least we'll get a look at him there prior to round 1. Though no doubt it won't change anything even if he plays poorly. I would hazard a guess the starting 13 above will be our starting 13 in round 1.

Elliott has ticked all the boxes so far at the helm of the Warriors,but this is his first mistake...Taylor at hooker just pisses me off, And with sketchy halfs pairing, we need a hooker with slick passing and decision making.and who is a hooker

Lowrie being given extended time off or does he have an injury?

EDIT: Just read his grandfather died. :(

I'm not sure the numbers beside their name is much of an indication...Charlie Gubb probably isn't in the running for the 5 jersey, then again he'd probably have the same speed, skill level and agility as the incumbent.

Sorry but we dont have Cameron Smith on the books...or does Mara have all this slick passing and decision making you're talking about, if he does we haven't seen it yet, not to mention the great defense thats needed at nine. Or were you thinking about good ol turnstile Godinot, if so...:eek:
