Veteran back rower Ryan Hoffman can tick off a few places he can call home.

Since late 2014 it has been Auckland while before that Melbourne, Wigan, Wellington and Sydney have all been home at some stage.

This weekend he's back in his birthplace as the Vodafone Warriors take on the Canberra Raiders. Hoffman was born in Woden Valley in the Australian Capital Territory in 1984 when his father Jay was a foundation player with the Raiders.

Yesterday he talked to the media about taking on the Raiders, his assessment of how the Vodafone Warriors are travelling after six rounds and his views on the best features of the club's back-to-back wins over Gold Coast and Parramatta.
