The NZ Warriors continued on their winning way last night with a hard fought 20-10 victory over the Melbourne Storm. The Storm had a poor game with communication at an all time low and too many mistakes made. The Warriors forward pack dealt out a bruising lesson to their Storm counterparts,Campion,SeuSeu,Villasanti and Guttenbiel all having excellent,solid games. The warriors inside backs are showing so much brilliance,Ithink they confuse themselves at times.Hohaia made some excellent attacking runs as did Captain Stacey Jones. Jones,s kicking skills were exceptional. Motu Tony made an immediate impact when he came off the bench in the early part of the 2nd half.His pace was explosive and at times even his own team seemed unsure what he would do next.If the Warriors coaching squad can harness that youthful energy and enthusiasm,the future looks decidedly bright for young Motu,and his team. Fa,afili was back to his aerial best and seems to be showing more aggression this season. The Storm ?,the kiwi members stood out,Swain,Kearney and Rua had excellent games.Marcus Bai had a good game but unfortunately didnt receive as much support as was required.
