Vodafone Warriors vs Brisbane Broncos

30-20 was the final score as the second placed Broncos took on the 12th placed Warriors at Mt Smart Stadium in Auckland New Zealand. 19,000 tickets were pre sold before the game. That means that with a big crowd, this would be a GREAT game!

"RRRRRRRR" The Whistle blew to signal the beginning of the game. Three minutes had passed and already the Warriors crossed foe their first four pointer, scored by rookie Ben Henry. The Kick peeled over the post making the score 6-0 In favour of the Warriors. Then By the 20 minute mark the visitors (the broncos) were in the lead by 10-6. That was two quick tries to Jack Reed and Alex Glenn. I thought that Jack Reeds was a no try.

12-10 the Warriors were back in the lead with a try to Shaun Johnson. It was a very scrappy try. With about 6 minutes until half time the warriors crossed over again through Elijah Taylor making the score 18-10. In the 38th minute Returning star Jacob Lillyman scored his first try of 2012. Going into half-time the Warriors were leading 24-10.

Ben Te'o the new Rabbits Star crossed over the try line in the 48th minute setting up the game for a grand stand finish. Half an hour of nail biting passed before the game was all but sealed. When Leading off loader Feleti Mateo scored with six minutes until full time at this point the score was 30-16. The Dying stages of the game was upon the teams when Sam Thiday of the Brisbane broncos broke the line and scored a consolation try. It was a great game!
