Warriors beat Panthers in Auckland

4:25 pm on 1 May 2011

The Warriors have beaten the Penrith Panthers 26-18 in their national rugby league clash at Mt Smart Stadium, the club's fourth win in five games lifting them into the top eight for the first time this season.

Winger Kevin Locke gave his chances of being included in the New Zealand ANZAC test squad named later tonight a major boost after scoring two tries, and the 22-year-old says the victory was crucial to continue the Warriors winning momentum.
