It appears Stacey Jones will remain a Warrior after all, the star halfback has turned down an approach from the Wigan Warriors to see out his contract with the New Zealand Warriors until the end of 2006. This news will please a lot of Warriors fans, who have seen their club disintegrate before their eyes over the past few months. But with their best player committing himself to the next two seasons beyond 2004, the club has a chance to refocus and rebuild a club that just last year treated the league world to a style of play that left you on the edge of your seat. Hopefully this is the first of a number of 'good news' stories out of Auckland, as the NRL's silly season heats up.
