NRL's Warriors mobbed at Sydney Airport

6:54 am on 30 September 2011

The Warriors arrived in Sydney conceding they "haven't got much hope" in the National Rugby League grand final against Manly unless they can reproduce their near flawless performance against Melbourne.

The Auckland franchise team were greeted by around 200 supporters at Sydney Airport.

Coach Ivan Cleary appeared happy with the underdog tag but warned his players risked embarrassment if they couldn't come up with the uncharacteristic control that stunned Melbourne at AAMI Park last weekend.

Cleary says the Warriors' focus is on delivering their best possible performance because if they don't they haven't got much chance.
