Here’s a look at the stats for all three Vodafone Warriors teams after the weekend’s sixth-round matches in the NRL, Intrust Super Premiership and NYC competitions.

Among the impressive performers in the ISP team’s 30-12 win over North Sydney on Sunday was back rower Ligi Sao.

Sidelined with a shoulder injury after the trial against St George Illawarra in February, Sao was on the field 59 minutes, making 118 metres from 13 runs as well as 23 tackles. He also had a try assist, charging down a kick, regathering and brilliantly back flicking to release fullback Henare Wells for a 60-metre try.

With a completion rate of almost 80 per cent, the Vodafone Warriors had nine players who gained 100 or more metres, wing Ken Maumalo with the most (189 from 16 runs). Prop James Gavet backed up 121 metres from 11 runs with 33 tackles in 63 minutes. New signing Shaun Lane was on the field the full 80 minutes, finishing with 31 tackles and just one miss.

The Vodafone Junior Warriors had several strong performers in their second win of the season, a 28-20 victory over Manly at Mount Smart Stadium on Saturday.

Front rowers Bunty Afoa and Isaiah Papalii both topped 100 metres, Afoa playing 80 minutes and Papalii 67 minutes. They turned in huge defensive efforts, Papalii with 46 tackles and Afoa with 42 (and not one missed tackle). Papalii also scored a powerhouse try.

Second rower Ofahihi Ogden was another to excel with 153 metres from 16 runs, a try assist, four tackles breaks, six off loads and 28 tackles without a miss.
