5:59 pm on 30 June 2013

The Warriors have defeated the Brisbane Broncos 18-16 in their National Rugby League clash in Auckland.

Bolstered by the return of their State of Origin stars, the Broncos scored twice in the first half before the Warriors hit back with tries to Manu Vatuvei and Elijah Taylor.

Josh Hoffman crossed the line for the visitors early in the second half to take the lead, but the Warriors fought back with centre Konrad Hurrell scoring a 60 metre run away try with nine minutes left on the clock.

The home side conceeded a penalty at half way on the stroke of full time, but the Bronco's missed the goal attempt.

The Warriors have now won five games in a row.
