The Warriors rampaging winger Manu Vatuvei scored a try in the 75th-minute to give his team a 32-28 win in their pre-season game over North Queensland yesterday before 16,500 fans at North Harbour stadium.

Vatuvei also scored the decisive try in the Warriors' 24-12 win over Melbourne in Hamilton earlier this month.

The game featured World Cup-winning Kiwis Simon Mannering, Nathan Fien and Jerome Ropati in their first runs this season.
