Training gave way to posing for the camera for the Vodafone Warriors at Mount Smart Stadium today.

The full NRL squad and football staff were all on call for team photos and an array of individual images.

First half the squad gathered in the Stacey Jones Room to do individual shots for promotional and editorial purposes before being joined by the rest of the players for a series of team photos in the stadium itself.

There was one of the players with No 1 supporter the Mad Butcher Sir Peter Leitch and another with the players only before they posed with two winners of a Flava competition and also with three Vodafone Warriors members who won a members-only competition to sit in a photo with the players.

Next up the 36 players in the wider NRL squad were joined by the staff for a mega photo featuring 50 people in total.

The session finished with the rest of the squad doing their individual shots.

The day was full on photo shoots all round. Earlier in the morning captain Simon Mannering and Shaun Johnson were up the Sky Tower in the city for a shot with the Four Nations Trophy they helped to secure with the Kiwis and later Johnson, Manu Vatuvei and Sam Tomkins were putting on the poses in a shoot with sponsor Asics.

Tomorrow training calls again.
