It may not have been a pretty win but we got the two points on Friday night against the North Queensland Cowboys.
I thought the team showed real toughness in holding the Cowboys out, especially considering all the possession the Cowboys had.
This weekend we have the bye but several of our players, about 10 in fact, are involved with international league and our strength and conditioning coach Alex Corvo is involved with the Queensland State of Origin side.
For the rest, it's a rare, and I am sure welcome, weekend off.
And congratulations to one of our own. Our South island correspondent John Coffey has been made a life member of the NZ Rugby League.
Former Vodafone Warrior Motu Tony has been added to the NZRL board, so congratulations to him too, a top bloke who will do a good job. Fantastic news for the game.
No prizes for guessing I'll be watching the Kiwis take on England in Denver on Sunday. I'll be on Waiheke Island, so go the Kiwis.
The Vodafone Warriors next game is next Friday night at Mt Smart against the Cronulla Sharks, with the gates open at 6pm. Four plays seven, so expect a good, close game.
Couple of interesting things in the newsletter this week. Will Evans tells use the top 10 youngest Warriors debutants.
