Hooker Nathan Fien has re-signed with the New Zealand Warriors until the end of the 2009 NRL season.
The 27-year-old joined the Warriors in 2005 after 91 appearances for North Queensland and is now closing in on his 50th outing for his second club. His 48th game for the Warriors, at Mt Smart Stadium on Sunday, will be against his old club.
Brisbane hooker Shaun Berrigan is under an injury cloud for tomorrow night's NRL derby with the Gold Coast at Suncorp Stadium.
A decision on Berrigan, who has a hip injury, will be made tomorrow when coach Wayne Bennett will decide on his bench for the clash. Berrigan took little party in today's final training session but is a strong chance to take his place in a game tipped to draw a crowd of more than 45,000.
It's the first time the Gold Coast and Brisbane have clashed since 1999 and the Titans have claimed home-team status, forcing the Broncos into the visitors' dressing room.
