    2007

    • A season defined by a return to finals football after failing to make the top eight in the previous three years.

    • In the first of two trials against NRL opponents, the Vodafone Warriors lost 14-32 to North Queensland in Mackay but the a week later – in front of a crowd for more than 15,000 – they produced one of the club’s best trial performances in history, trouncing the Bulldogs 36-6.

    • Opened NRL campaign with impressive 34-18 win over Parramatta. New signing Wade McKinnon scored in his club debut against his former club.

    • Followed up with 24-14 victory over Brisbane but, after promising start to season, the club found itself back in the mix battling to stay in the hunt for a spot in the finals. The turning point was a 12-2 win against Cronulla in round 14, followed by victories against Penrith 54-14 – McKinnon scoring one of the game’s greatest tries – and Gold Coast 22-6. A controversial loss to the Cowboys in Townsville was the prelude to some stunning wins over St George Illawarra (44-16), Wests Tigers (28-16) and Newcastle (52-10) before one of the NRL’s most remarkable contests when the Vodafone Warriors had a 31-31 golden point draw with the Sydney Roosters. With other wins over Gold Coast, Manly and Penrith, the club secured a top four spot.

    • In front of a sell-out crowd of almost 29,000 at Mount Smart Stadium, the Vodafone Warriors lost their week one finals clash against Parramatta 8-12. The result forced them into an away clash against the Cowboys in the second week. Played in the heat of the day, the Vodafone Warriors had injury setbacks and ultimately wilted losing 12-49.

    • New arrival Michael Witt established himself as one of the NRL’s most exceptional goal-kickers, finishing with 153 points after taking up the goal-kicking duties earlier in the season. Jerome Ropati, Grant Rovelli and Manu Vatuvei were the top try-scorers were 10 each.

    • Louis Anderson, Todd Byrne, George Gatis, Corey Lawrie and Tony Martin finish up with Vodafone Warriors.

    • April 12 – Nathan Fien signed until the end of the 2009 season.

    • April 17 – Simon Mannering, Manu Vatuvei and Sam Rapira named in Kiwi team for Anzac Test against Australia in Brisbane (Rapira making his Test debut)

    • April 24 – Michael Witt signed until the end of the 2009 season.

    • May 12 – Lance Hohaia signed until the end of the 2009 season.

    • May 30 – Vodafone Warriors announce Australian, Queensland centre Brent Tate signed on a three-year contract to the end of the 2010 season.

    • October 6 – Five Vodafone Warriors named in Kiwi squad for tour to United Kingdom and France (Louis Anderson, Lance Hohaia, Epalahame Lauaki, Simon Mannering and Sam Rapira).

    • October 14 – Vodafone Warriors Simon Mannering and Sam Rapira included in Kiwi team for Centenary Test against Australia in Wellington.

    • October 28 – Epalahame Lauaki signs three-year contract until the end of the 2010 season.

    • November 14 – Melbourne centre Ryan Shortland signed on one-year contract for 2008 season.

    • February 4 – Vodafone Warriors One Community launched at Kidz First Children’s Hospital.

    • February 10 – Ruben Wiki announces 2008 season will be his last in NRL. He also says he is seeking to finish his playing career in England.

    • February 15 – Fullback Wade McKinnon suffered what was thought to be a season-ending injury in the Vodafone Warriors’ 14-22 NRL trial defeat by Newcastle at North Harbour Stadium.

    • March 17 – Vodafone Junior Warriors beaten by Melbourne in debut in new National Youth Competition (NYC).

    • March 17 – Vodafone Warriors lose 18-32 to Storm in opening NRL match of season. Captain Steve Price forced off field with serious hamstring injury which sidelines him for eight weeks.

    • March 23 – Vodafone Warriors beat Parramatta 30-16 for first win of NRL season. After just one round, Sonny Fai becomes club’s first NYC player to make NRL debut.

    • April 3 – Vodafone Warriors One Community launches Warriors Against Bullying programme for schools.

    • April 5 – Sonny Fai signed with Vodafone Warriors until end of 2010 NRL season.

    • April 16 – Manu Vatuvei extends contract with Vodafone Warriors until end of 2011 NRL season.

    • May 28 – Veteran prop Ruben Wiki named to play for Auckland Vulcans in New South Wales Cup.

    • May 29 – Vodafone Warriors sign Brisbane winger Denan Kemp on two-year contract to end of 2010 NRL season.

    • June 1 – Vodafone Warriors sign Steve Price and Wade McKinnon on new contracts (Price on a one-year deal for 2009 and McKinnon for two years until the end of the 2011 season).

    • June 3 – Ruben Wiki recalled to NRL side after one match with the Auckland Vulcans.

    • June 19 – Vodafone Warriors sign Queensland and North Queensland Cowboys second rower Jacob Lillyman on two-year contract to end of 2010 season. He will be one of four players with Queensland Origin experience on 2009 roster along with Brent Tate, Steve Price and Nathan Fien.

    • June 29 – Ruben Wiki becomes the first New Zealander to make 300 appearances in the NRL and just the 10th player to do so in the competition’s 100-year history. He brings up the feat in the Vodafone Warriors’ 16th-round 28-26 win against Wests Tigers at Leichhardt Oval, a result which begins the club’s late charge to secure a place in the finals.

    • July-August – The Vodafone Warriors embark on run which takes them into the play-offs for the second straight season. After beating the Tigers they beat North Queensland 24-14, the Bulldogs 44-20 (rookie Malo Solomona scoring a hat-trick) and Melbourne 8-6. After a 16-18 defeat by South Sydney, wins against Brisbane 16-12 and Cronulla 18-4 were followed by a poor performance against St George Illawarra (6-34) before wins against Penrith (42-20) and Parramatta (28-6) secured eighth spot in the minor premiership. Manu Vatuvei scored five tries in the last two games including a career-first hat-trick against the Eels.

    • August 15 – Vodafone Warriors announce signing of Lewis Brown from Wests Tigers and Ukuma Ta’ai from the Auckland Vulcans for the 2009 NRL season.

    • August 27 – Vodafone Warriors One Community launches Rugby League Reads, an educational initiative designed to improve literacy among young school children.

    • September 14 – The Vodafone Warriors had history against them in week one of the finals. No eighth-placed side had ever beaten the minor premiers but Ivan Cleary’s side produced a remarkable finish to a pulsating contest with a last-minute try to snatch a shock 18-15 victory. It came from deep inside their half, Jerome Ropati holding up Melbourne’s defence to send Manu Vatuvei clear, the big winger drawing the defence and popping up a superb off load for the supporting Michael Witt to race away for the match-winning try in the corner.

    • September 19 – In week two of the finals, the Vodafone Warriors hosted week one losers the Sydney Roosters. Mount Smart Stadium was jam-packed with a sell-out crowd of just under 26,000 (the ground’s capacity had been reduced since the previous season). After falling 6-13 behind the Vodafone Warriors were inspired in the second spell, scoring 24 unanswered points to win 30-13 and move within one victory of the NRL grand final. The occasion provided another hometown farewell for the retiring Ruben Wiki.

    • September 27 – Needing just one more win to reach the club’s second grand final, there was ample expectation but it proved a game too far for the Vodafone Warriors. Manly scored on halftime to lead 12-0 and put the game out of reach soon after the break on the way to winning 32-6. The night was doubly disappointing for the club as the Vodafone Junior Warriors were edged out of the inaugural NYC grand final. Leading with seconds remaining they conceded a try after the final siren to lose 26-28 in a heartbreaking end to the game.

    • October 9 – Kevin Locke named Vodafone NYC Player of the Year at the inaugural Vodafone Junior Warriors annual awards dinner. Elijah Taylor named the Allied Work Force Young NYC Player of the Year and Kurt Tehira named the Samsung NYC Clubman of the year.

    • September 16 – Simon Mannering named the Lion Red Player of the Year at the 2008 Vodafone Warriors awards dinner at SKYCITY.

    • October 7 – Six Vodafone Warriors are named in the Kiwis’ squad for the 2008 Rugby League World Cup (Lance Hohaia, Manu Vatuvei, Jerome Ropati, Simon Mannering, Nathan Fien and Sam Rapira).   

    • November 7 – Vodafone Warriors announce club legend Stacey Jones has signed a one-year contract to return to the NRL in 2009.

    • November 13 – The Vodafone Warriors are named the NRL Club of the Year at the One Community awards dinner in Sydney.

    • November 22 – Kiwis win Rugby League World Cup for first time, stunning the Kangaroos 34-20 in the final at Suncorp Stadium.

    2009

    • January 4 – Outstanding young back rower Sonny Fai is swept out to sea while trying to save his brother and four cousins who had got into difficulty in the surf at Bethells Beach on Auckland’s west coast. On January 5, the day the NRL squad assembled to resume preseason training, the players and coaching staff met at Bethells Beach to help with a search for the 20-year-old Fai. His body was never found. The Vodafone Warriors dedicated the 2009 season to Sonny Fai, the NRL players wearing a jersey which had his signature and club number of 138 embroidered on it. They wore black armbands every match during the season and kept his name on the playing roster while the club also dedicated the fifth-round match against South Sydney to Fai’s memory.

    • February 15 – Vodafone Warriors sign World Cup winner Simon Mannering on new three-year contract until end of 2012 season.

    • February 25 – Vodafone Warriors launch 2009 season, the club’s 15th in the competition, with the motto ‘new year, new team, new look’. New signings were formally introduced (Jacob Lillyman, Joel Moon, Denan Kemp and late signing Jesse Royal) while first-year apparel sponsor Canterbury of New Zealand unveiled the club’s new playing kit as well as a new street wear range. The club’s home jersey would go on to be a No 1 seller across the NRL. NRL chief executive David Gallop was the keynote speaker at the lunch held in the Club Lounge at Mount Smart Stadium.

    • February 28 – The Vodafone Warriors complete their trials programme with a 34-12 victory over Gold Coast in Lismore. They had earlier beaten Melbourne 24-12 in Hamilton and North Queensland 32-28 at North Harbour Stadium.

    • March 14 – Vodafone Warriors captain Steve Price becomes just the 11th player to make 300 first-grade appearances in the NRL competition’s 101-year history. He led the club to a season-opening 26-18 win over Parramatta, a record seventh consecutive home win for the Vodafone Warriors.

    • March 22 – Stacey Jones makes a stunning return to the NRL, more than three and a half years after his last game for the Vodafone Warriors in 2005. On that occasion (his 238th appearance) he scored a match-winning try to beat Manly at Brookvale Oval. For his 239th game, he was again facing Manly and he was again at Brookvale Oval. Coming into the match off the bench, Jones turned the game in the final stages with his side 16-24 behind. First he chipped, re-gathered and put Brent Tate in for a try and then he bombed to the left for Jerome Ropati to make it 24-24 with a minute left. Denan Kermp converted from the sideline for a dramatic 26-24 win.

    • March 25 – Vodafone Warriors stand-off Michael Witt announced he was leaving the club after signing a contract to play rugby union for Otago. He had scored 291 points in 43 appearances in 2007-08.

    • March 28 – Playing in front of a huge crowd of 24,350, the Vodafone Warriors were unable to secure a third straight win to open the 2009 season, going down 10-26 to Brisbane. In another devastating blow, key centre Brent Tate ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, ending his 2009 season (he needed surgery on his left knee in 2007).

    • March 29 – Vodafone Warriors sign centre Jerome Ropati on a new three-year contract to the end of the 2012 season which will extend his NRL career with the club to 10 seasons (having made his debut in 2003).

    • April 12 – Vodafone Warriors sign utility Lance Hohaia on a two-year contract to the end of the 2011 season which will also extend his NRL career with the club to 10 seasons (having made his debut in 2002).

    • April 25 – Loose forward Micheal Luck makes an NRL record 74 tackles in the Vodafone Warriors’ 14-14 golden point draw with Melbourne.

    • May 3 – Vodafone Warriors sign Steve Price on a one-year contract for the 2010 season.

    • May 14 – Vodafone Warriors sign Ian Henderson on two-year contract to the end of the 2011 season.

    • May 19 – Vodafone Warriors announce utility Nathan Fien will be released at end of the 2009 season.

    June 30 – Vodafone Warriors grant Nathan Fien’s request for an early release to join St George Illawarra.

    • August 1 – Vodafone Warriors announce signing of former Brisbane and Cronulla halfback Brett Seymour on a one-year contract for 2010 season.

    • August 30 – Ivan Cleary brings up 100th game as club’s NRL coach in second to last match of the season against the Bulldogs.

    • September 1 – In the countdown to the final match of a challenging season, Vodafone Warriors chief executive Wayne Scurrah confirms the club will undergo a robust end-of-season football review. He announces Monty Betham, Awen Guttenbeil and Hugh McGahan will be joined in the review team by former world champion New Zealand softballer Dean Rice.

    • September 5 – The Vodafone Warriors finish their 2009 campaign with a 0-30 loss to Melbourne, a disappointing end to a disappointing season on a night when Stacey Jones plays his 261st and final NRL match and Simon Mannering made his 100th first-grade appearance. Jones goes out with 674 points from 77 tries, 176 goals and 14 field goals. The Vodafone Warriors ran 14th in the minor premiership sitting on 20 points from a return of seven wins, two draws and 15 losses. The top try-scorer was Manu Vatuvei with 13 tries in 19 appearances.

    • September 25 – New structure confirmed for football department featuring several new positions including recruitment and development manager (Dean Bell), football operations manager (Don Mann), high performance manager (Craig Walker) and medical services manager (Jude Spiers).
