Defence still an issue for the Warriors

8:33 am on 28 September 2011

The Warriors coach Ivan Cleary says despite the praise his players received for the way they beat the Storm in Melbourne to reach their second NRL final, their defence at the start of the match wasn't as good as it'll need to be if they're to beat Manly in Sydney on Sunday night.

But Cleary says there are some good things to take from the match as well and getting wins two weeks in a row against highly ranked teams under the bright lights has built confidence in the camp.

The Warriors fly to Sydney this afternoon.
