Vodafone Warriors captain Ryan Hoffman was at Mountain View School this week to help with the draw for the 2017 Downer NRL Auckland Nines at Eden Park on February 4-5.

Afterwards he talked to Vodafone Warriors TV about the draw, looking forward to starting his preseason campaign next week and, most of all, his recent study tour to the United States.

While there he watched NFL and college football games as well as visiting NBA franchise the Brooklyn Nets. At the Nets he met former NBA player and Tall Black Sean Marks and presented him with a Vodafone Warriors jersey.
