Warriors win big in trial vs Bulldogs

Very impressive win for the Warriors last night v the Dogs out at Albany 36-6. I could get very used to that type of scoreline. Was a full strength dogs side including Sonny Bill. Sounds like everyone made a contribution including a standout 50m try from new fullback Wade McKinnon.

Its my last day in NZ today - flying back to London via Singapore this afternoon. Has been a great trip and I leave full of confidence that Cleary Year II is going to be a massive year for the Warriors.

A big shoutout to all the peeps in Auckland and the Wellington crew, its was great to catch up with you all and hope you keep following the blog. Also a special shoutout to Dan who claims to check the blog at least every week - if not everyday - you are a model for all the other readers out there.

Other big NRL story of the day is Gasnier out for the season with a pectoral tear. I purchased another copy of Rugby League Week earlier on in the week and the whole issue was basically devoted to the decision to shift Gasnier from the centres into no. 6 - I guess that discussion is a total waste of space now. In bigger picture terms this may totally undermine the St G season and thereby bring the Warriors another step closer to an elusive top four spot.

See you all back in London soon as we zero in on NRL Round 1 2007.
