Vodafone Warriors and Northern Eagles Prepare to Clash
Auckland, New Zealand, May 29, 2001 – After a decisive win against the Canberra Raiders, the Vodafone Warriors are hoping to deliver another winning performance against the Northern Eagles this Friday at Ericsson Stadium.
February’s round two game against the Eagles saw the Vodafone Warriors post their first points of the season on the NRL scoreboard, and the side is determined to repeat the effort in front of a home crowd.
“The team played a good game against Canberra. After our last few games, I was relieved the guys played well. They gelled well as a unit,” says Coach Daniel Anderson.
“The players worked hard and deserve the confidence boost the win has given them.
“Everyone is looking forward to the Eagles game – because we are at home we get to have a bit of a breather and avoid the travel issues. After the past few weeks, it’s a welcome respite.
“I’m picking Friday will be a close game – the Eagles haven’t had a bad season and they’ll be tough opponents. We beat them last time, but I don’t think anyone is taking it for granted that we’ll win again,” says Anderson.
The home side will be without one of last Saturday’s star defenders, Logan Swann. Swann pleaded guilty for both careless high tackle charges brought against him and will miss three games. Ali Lau’itiiti has pleaded not guilty to a careless high tackle charge and will appear before the judiciary tomorrow night. However, the Eagles game will see the return of co-captain Kevin Campion.

The Vodafone Warriors line up against the Northern Eagles will be as follows:
1. Ivan Cleary
2. Henry Faafili
3. Clinton Toopi
4. Wairangi Koopu
5. Francis Meli
6. Motu Tony
7. Stacey Jones (C)
8. Jerry SeuSeu
9. Jason Death
10. Ali Lauitiiti
11. Awen Guttenbeil
12. Monty Betham
13. Kevin Campion (C)
14. Nathan Wood
15. Richard Villasanti
16.Jonathon Smith
17.David Myles

Ericsson Stadium gates open at 5.15pm - the Bartercard Cup curtain raiser (Glenora Bears vs. Wainuiomata) will start at 5.30pm. The main game, Vodafone Warriors vs. Northern Eagles, kicks off at 7.30pm.
ENDS.
