Brian McClennan tells players to expect tough pre season

The Warriors coach Brian McClennan says his players can expect a torturous 2013 pre-season, working on their concentration under fatigue.

There's now no way for last year's grand finalists to make the National Rugby League top eight, after the New Zealand team was thrashed 52 -12 on Saturday by the North Queensland Cowboys.

McClennan says consistency and concentration are the work-ons for his charges next year, following a season in which they've squandered handy leads and failed to live up to expectations.
