Whangarei to host Warriors again

6:07 am on 15 November 2011

Whangarei will again host the New Zealand Warriors in a National Rugby League pre-season match in February.

It has been confirmed that Queensland Cup side the Sunshine Coast Sea Eagles will take on the beaten 2011 grand finalists at Toll Stadium on February 18th, while the Junior Warriors, the NYC's back-to-back premiers, will play in the curtain raiser.

The trial will be the last before the Warriors start their 2012 season against 2011 premiers the Manly Sea Eagles at Eden Park.

In other pre-season matches the Warriors play Gold Coast in Albany on February 4th and Souths at Coffs harbour on February 11th.
