Warriors part of emotional day for Dragons

5:25 pm on 23 August 2008

Farewells will be high on the agenda at WIN Stadium tomorrow afternoon, but St George Illawarra rugby league captain, Mark Gasnier, says his only concern is ensuring it's not his side's NRL finals hopes which are to be bid adieu.

The Dragons and the Warriors head into tomorrow's game locked on 26 competition points, and while the winner will have one foot inside the finals door, the loser will be left battling for a top eight finish.

Tomorrow will also signal the final game in Wollongong for experienced duo Gasnier and Jason Ryles - who will both play their football in France next season - while coach Nathan Brown and winger Josh Morris will also farewell the club's southern base.

The Warriors have never won at WIN Stadium but their three most recent wins have come against top five sides Melbourne, Brisbane and the Sharks,strong defence holding each of those opponents to 12 points or less.
