Warriors star back after tragedy

5:16 pm on 20 May 2011

While the Warriors rugby league team return home from their successful two-match NRL road trip this weekend, there's also a return to the starting lineup for hooker Aaron Heremaia - following a family tragedy.

Heremaia's team-mates wore black armbands in the Warriors' away wins over the Gold Coast and Newcastle, after his wife Enrica lost their identical twins after 19 weeks.

Heremaia says she's been very strong throughout the loss and they're moving on together.

Aaron and Enrica Heremaia have a two-year-old son.

The Warriors play South Sydney at home in Auckland on Sunday.
