There will be a touch of sadness in the air at Erricson Stadium tomorrow night as the Warriors play their final home round match against the Wests Tigers.
Most will have in the back of their minds that it is also the final appearance of foundation player, Logan Swann.
141 games have been played for the Warriors by Swann and a more dedicated clubman you would be hard pushed to find.
Only Stacey Jones has played more games for the club and at 27 years old, Logan still has a good few games left in his rangy frame.
Swann has seen the Warriors through the good times as well as the hard and it is a credit to "Suaves" resilience and loyalty that he is still playing for the once troubled club.
Salary cap restrictions have necessitated his search for another club which is a downright shame as most Warrior fans will acknowledge that Swann is one of our best performed players this season.He will continue his playing career at an ESL club in Great Britain.
The writer wishes Logan all the very best and I am sure I speak for most Kiwi fans in hoping to see him back in the black jersey in the immediate future.
