Warriors end pre-season unbeaten

6:31 am on 19 February 2012

The New Zealand Warriors rugby league side have finished their pre-season with a third straight win in Whangarei, thrashing the Queensland Cup side the Sunshine Coast Sea Eagles 68-10.

The Warriors came through the trial with no fresh injury concerns as Test centre Jerome Ropati played his first game in nearly 11 months after missing most of last year's NRL season with a serious knee injury.

The Warriors ran in 13 tries to win in front of a crowd of about 9,000 at Toll Stadium and now turn their focus to their season-opening grand final rematch against Manly at Eden Park on March the 4th.
