Warriors wary of bucking Broncos

By James Perry

After successfully negotiating the North Queensland Cowboys on Saturday, The Warriors face another Queensland side this week, The Brisbane Broncos.

The Broncos have had a rough start to the season, winning only two of their five games so far this year.

But the Warriors are fully aware that a champion side never stays down for long. 

"They're a quality side. They're shown...for a long time that they are a team that are filled with great players and dangerous players.  So you need to turn up for the full 80 minutes against a team like the Broncos," says star second-rower Tohu Harris.

Coach Stephen Kearney, who spent some time learning the art of coaching under Wayne Bennett at the Broncos is also anticipating a Broncos side rearing to go.

He said that his side will be prepared as best they can be, "[Brisbane will] be coming here with a real commitment and a real determination and we're preparing for the best game of footy".

The double-header on the weekend gone had the full house signs up for the first time in a while.

Five-eighth Blake Green says, "Hopefully we can get a big crowd down there.  It's old boys day for us, so we'll have the heritage jerseys on and hopefully we can do a good job".

The round 6 game kicks off at 5pm on Saturday at Mt Smart Stadium.
