Overnight Wrap


New Zealand Warriors captain Steve Price hopes his side can gather some momentum with a victory over Penrith at Mt Smart Stadium tonight.

The Warriors ended a six-game losing streak last week against Cronulla and Price knows they have to win at home tonight to keep pace with the top eight. Penrith might be running last but have won seven of their past eight clashes with the Warriors.

The Bulldogs will look to rebound from a week of turmoil in tonight's NRL clash with Manly at Brookvale Oval. The Dogs have been under siege after off-field player dramas last weekend.

A victory for Manly will take them to 26 competition points and assure them off a finals position while the Bulldogs have lost four of their past five and need a win to keep pace with the top eight.

Centre Steve Bell has claimed that Manly's defence is the equal of Queenslands, when quizzed on tonight's game.

Craig Wing has apologised to Sydney Roosters fans after his very public defection to South Sydney, fearing it has tarnished his eight years at the club.

Wing was branded a "show pony" for appearing at a rival club's press conference yesterday to announce his four-year deal despite still being under contract with the Roosters.

But Wing today apologised for upsetting the club's fans and had support from his team mates who are adamant the hooker is committed to their charge for a finals appearance.
