Warriors

The New Zealand Warriors averted an Australian national emergency by falling at the final hurdle in their proud and historic run to the National Rugby League Grand Final, losing to Sydney Roosters 3-8. From ruin two years ago the club has reached the pinnacle of Australian rugby league. After their victory over Cronulla the Aussies were worried and eating humble pie: “They’ve won the America’s Cup, they own the Melbourne Cup and now they’re 8 minutes away from snatching rugby leagues most treasured prize.” “On Sunday a drought will end or a dynasty born. But at least one half of Bondi, often dubbed West Auckland, will be celebrating.”
