Warriors snatch victory last minute victory against Roosters

6:36 pm on 19 July 2009

The Warriors have held off a Sydney Roosters fightback to beat the city-siders 30-22 at the Sydney Football Stadium.

The visitors were down 18-10 at halftime but two quick tries from Manu Vatuvei put the Warriors ahead 20-18.

However all seemed lost when the Roosters scored in the 70th minute before an 80 metre solo effort from fullback Wade McKinnon kept the Warriors faint playoff hopes alive.

Veteran Stacey Jones dived over in the corner in the dying secons of the match to seal the win.
