The New Zealand Warriors have stood up today to be counted, and let the rest of the competition know they are the real deal. They knocked over the Penrith Panthers 12-6 to firmly entrench themselves as a top 4 contender in NRL 2010. In the other Sunday game, the Nambucca Chooks Reserve Grade side would have played better and more entertaining football than the Knights and the Sharks. For the record, the Knights defeated the Sharks 21-10. For the record neither side will be playing past September.
