Warriors pain set to increase

8:50 am on 17 April 2011

It was a bad night for the Warriors in the National Rugby League on Saturday.

The Auckland side posted a fourth loss, going down 20-10 at Manly, Shaun Berrigan suffered a fractured hand and they're set to cop another fine after forward Jeremy Latimore was named on the bench an hour before kick-off, but started the match instead of Russell Packer.

During the week the Warriors were fined $3000 for for being three minutes late onto the Mt Smart Stadium field to face the Sydney Roosters last Saturday night.

And they copped a further $2000 for trainer Ruben Wiki manhandling a player when an altercation started.

Manly scored four tries to two to go fifth for now. The Warriors are 11th.

North Queensland finally registered back-to-back NRL wins with a 26-18 victory over Canberra in Townsville and Brisbane won their fifth straight, the Broncos beating the Sydney Roosters 24-6 at Gosford.
