General Warriors Fans in Sydney/Oz

Hey all,

Long time reader first time poster. With the season not too far off I though I might say G'day and discuss my dream for 2006.

I'm planning on trying to get to every game in Oz this season and was wondering if there's anything in place already for us poor displaced Warriors fans in which we can get together fanatics style at away games and scream for the team.

If not, i'm putting forward a motion that we start looking at doing it for the first match in Oz which is Newcastle I believe. I managed to get to about 8 away games last year and all the warriors fans that I sat near were great fun and it dawned on me that it would be great from a support basis if we could consistently group together and support our team in Oz and it would also double as a way for NZ based fans to find some friendly faces to sit with.

Anyways, just putting it out there, you can throw it back if you don't like it or inform me if someone's already doing it so i can jump on board.

Cheers and go the Warriors in 06 and every other year!

Welcome to both of you. A few diehards in Sydney usually go most away games. Just post about a week leading up to a game in Sydney then you will get some results

Sweet. Thanks for the heads up PM.

I was thinking of testing the waters now and seeing if there is enough popular support we could organise a charter bus or something along those lines. I know it's still early days but we might as well put it in the air now and if there's enough support for it we can tee it up.

That's ok Taj! I'll see you in round 26 for the Broncos Warriors game!

I've turned it into a tradition cos a couple of my more clueless mates are Broncos supporters so our touring group is 2 warriors fans and 2 broncos fans.

That said my mate managed to score one of the Red 2000 jerseys while we were there last year, funny story actually. The guy we bought it off wanted $50 for it but his mate chipped in and said, "Nah ask for $100" so he ended up selling it for $100. He didn't have a shirt to go home in so he wandered off topless, however he said that the jersey was used in games as he left. We sorta laughed it off but there's texta markings and the badges are hand sewn on too which struck us as odd. Guess we'll never know....

Enough of a segue there....anyways, yeah we'll probably know if the Warriors Road Show is a success by rd 26, if not you'll have to put up with me and my mates Taj.

I try to get to all Sydney games, looking at going to Newcastle this year, maybe Townsville if I can twist the wifes arm, maybe Melbourne?

I reckon outside the ground itself is great fun after games in Sydney, when we win anyway. The Polynesians have a real emotional way of celebrating, I love it!

I'm in Bankstown and go to most Warriors games with either the boyz or the missus. I'm down for any get-together with other Oz Sydney Warriors Supporters.

Hi everyone - I moved to Brissy end of last year and the one thing I'm gonna really miss is going to Ericsson for all the home games. Going down to the coast for the friendly and we are off to Newcastle too.
This is the first post since I've been here but been logging in and catching up with all the goss. Looking forward to the start of the season.
Hey and its good to see there is still lots of healthy debate going on!
Go the Warriors!

Nice to see you again Leagueless.
So you're up in Brissy now? It must be hot as over your way. I'm actually in Melbourne, been here almost two weeks now. Anyway nice to have you back again and yup the Warriors discussion is still going on strong. :lol:

Hey there,

Sorry Warriors Hot Stepper, been away. Anyways, I'm in the north, in Epping. A Warriors army is exactly what I had planned in the not too distant future. If you can remember that 13-12 finals win over Canberra when the whole of the SFS echoed with "Warriors" chants, that's what I'd like it to be...but I'm a realist and I'd settle for perhaps half a bay of black.

Anyways what I was thinking was perhaps looking at chartering a minibus or small coach, starting out from say Central or Strathfield and that way we can meet our fellow Warrior, plan chants and yelling and it takes the trouble out of travel. Hopefully it's not too cost prohibitive. Anyways, we've got a good 7 weeks before we get to see the boys in Oz, so what do you Sydney/Oz based Warriors fans say? Are you behind the Warriors army bus?
