Price bears no grudge

3:43 pm on 24 July 2009

The New Zealand Warriors rugby league captain Steve Price won't take the field against St George-Illawarra on Sunday harbouring a grudge against the Dragons' prop Justin Poore.

Poore picked up then dropped Price after the Queensland prop had been knocked out during the third State of Origin match.

Price was carried from the field and missed last weekend's win over the Roosters in Sydney.

Poore's back with the NRL table-topping Dragons in Auckland on Sunday afternoon and Price says he appreciates a call he received from the New South Wales prop.

Price says it was a pretty big call to make and he's accepted Poore's explanation that it wasn't a deliberate action.
