Warriors to run three teams in 2014

The Vodafone Warriors and the Auckland Rugby League today announced they had reached agreement for the NRL club to take over operation of the Vulcans in the New South Wales Cup.

Originally set up by the Mount Albert club as the Auckland Lions in 2007, the Vulcans have until now been run on a joint venture basis between the ARL and the Vodafone Warriors.

ARL chairman Cameron McGregor said the timing was right for the Vodafone Warriors to take control.
