Vodafone Warriors Target Holiday Hit Out

Auckland, New Zealand, April 10, 2001 – The Vodafone Warriors are hoping to attract a big Easter crowd and give hometown fans a holiday treat when the club takes on the Penrith Panthers at Ericsson Stadium on Easter Monday.

With co-captain Kevin Campion back in the line up, and almost a full squad to choose from, coach Daniel Anderson is able to field a strong team as the club looks for a complete performance to follow on from last week’s express train finish in Wellington.

“We’ve shown we can break the opposition line,” says coach Daniel Anderson. “Now I’m looking for the team to capitalise more effectively on that. We’ll be focusing this week on better communication amongst the players. It’s something we still have to work on but when they get it going they really fire as a team.”

“Monday’s game is a good opportunity for us to show the fans in Auckland that we can put together back-to-back performances,” says Vodafone Warriors General Manger, Mick Watson. “We delivered down south last weekend, now we want to do the same for the fans at home.”

“We’ve said all along our success relies on the support of our grass-roots fans and we are as determined as ever to deliver a quality performance.”

The afternoon’s entertainment (the game kicks off at 2:00 pm) will take place in a family festival atmosphere, with a curtain raiser game between Auckland and Wellington (A Representative Game) at 12 noon. There will be free kids entertainment including a bouncing castle, face painter, Easter Bunny giving away M&M’s and lolly scrambles too.

Halftime entertainment features a number of leading radio personalities in the Air New Zealand Celebrity Kicking ‘Bomb Catching’ Competition.

Every spectator through the gates will also get an entry form and the chance to win dinner for themselves and a friend with their favourite Vodafone Warrior.

The Vodafone Warrior’s line up for Monday’s game is as follows:

1. Justin Murphy
2. Henry Faafili
3. Clinton Toopi
4. Ivan Cleary
5. Francis Meli
6. Nathan Wood
7. Stacey Jones (C)
8. Ali Lauitiiti
9. Jason Death
10. Justin Morgan
11. Logan Swann
12. Awen Guttenbeil
13. Kevin Campion (C)
14. Monty Betham
15. Richard Villasanti
16. Jason Temu
17. Richie Blackmore

The Vodafone Warriors will take on the Penrith Panthers in Round 9 of the NRL competition at Ericsson Stadium, Monday, April 16, 2.00pm.

ENDS.
