Warriors home crowd farewells Wiki -- again

There may have been a touch of deja vu for the iconic Warriors prop Ruben Wiki as he was farewelled by his home crowd tonight before during and after the 30-13 win over the Sydney Rooster.

It was just three weeks ago that Wiki was given a celebratory send-off in what was assumed to be his last home game, when the Warriors easily beat Penrith.

A week later the Warriors played the Eels in Parramatta, in what would have been Wiki's last game, had they lost but he got another reprieve.

And last Sunday's shock win over the Storm in Melbourne set up Wiki for what is finally his last home game, this one in front of a capacity crowd of nearly 26,000,.
