Stacey Jones Back in the Thick of

Warriors fans can breathe a sigh of relief with news star halfback Stacey Jones has resumed full contact training.

Jones has been recovering from off season surgery on a groin injury.

Coach Daniel Anderson says Jones has been in the thick of things at training in the last few days, and he is also doing some kicking, and it is a bonus for them having him back as they leave for their final pre-season training camp at Mount Maunganui today.

Anderson says that with Jones back, they can simulate games and put the finishing touches on their match strategy.

The camp will also be a good opportunity for the squad's youngsters to mingle with various players on and off the training paddock.

Anderson says a lot of those youngsters are in awe of the likes of Jones.

The NRL season opens for the Warriors next weekend with a clash against the Broncos.
