De­pleted Bron­cos stall

Sunday Tasmanian - - Sport - Auck­land

THE War­riors have bounced back from suc­ces­sive NRL losses in style, swat­ting aside an un­der­manned Bris­bane 28-10 in Auck­land.

In stark con­trast to pre­vi­ous de­feats, the War­riors could do no wrong on their home turf and dom­i­nated in de­fence and at­tack in the five tries to two win. Aided by a for­ward pack that made 300 more me­tres than their op­po­nents, War­riors half­back Shaun Johnson was handed enough time and space to wreak havoc.

He nabbed a try and two try as­sists to go with his four con­ver­sions, while full­back Roger Tuiv­asa-Sheck hit the line from deep to snare a try and as­sist of his own. Bris­bane was with­out key play­ers be­cause of State of Ori­gin com­mit­ments.
