DOING IT FOR THE LADIES
We are doing it for the ladies this weekend as we take on the Penrith Panthers in our Women in League round. Since former Vodafone Warriors coach Ivan Cleary made the move back to Australia to join the Panthers, the two teams have had quite the rivalry. It’s easy to understand why; the Panthers now have four former Vodafone Warriors in their team, the best of the bunch, Lewis Brown and Elijah Taylor. Welcome these guys back to Mount Smart Stadium as the enemy in Round 16.
