Warriors choose Ericsson as home

The Auckland Rugby League is feeling let down over news the Warriors have all but turned their back on Carlaw Park.

The Warriors have been guaranteed money for the redevelopment of Ericsson Stadium, so they have decided to stay put.

Auckland League chairman Cameron McGregor says they thought the decision would not be made until later in the year.

McGregor says they will have to sell Carlaw Park if the Warriors don't want it.

This decision will dissapoint a lot of older Rugby League fans who were hoping a deal could be reached between the Auckland City Council,Auckland Rugby League and the N.R.L. to retain the "Grand Old Lady" of Rugby League,Carlaw Park.

Ericsson Stadium is smack-bang in the center of a huge industrial area with no pre or after match facilities handy.
