In front of close to 25,000 people, both sides put up a good show. The chant of 'Warriors' could be heard throughtout the game, and the players certainly responded.
The scoring didn't start until the 22nd min, when the Warriors managed to get across the line.
The Broncos responded 10 minutes later, and the break saw the scores locked at 6 all.
In the second half, the Broncos stepped up a gear, and scored first in the 50th min.
The Warriors hit back at the now tiring Broncos players, scoring 3 unanswered tries.
Scoring one more try apiece, the Warriors came out the decisive victors in the end, proving to a lot of critics that they can make it with the big guns.
