Surprises for contest winners
Winners in our Warriors v Knights contest got more than they expected during the May 31 match at Mt Smart Stadium.
Fairfax Media, publisher of this newspaper, teamed up with Sir Peter Leitch to give away 12 double passes to the game.
Two people also won Warrior jerseys.
Everyone got an invitation to join a guided tour of the stadium before kick off and those who turned up received a prize pack of Warriors merchandise.
They also got to watch the Warriors chalk up a 24-20 victory from the Stacey Jones lounge as special guests of Sir Peter who then introduced them to former player Awen Guttenbeil.
Sir Peter has teamed up with Fairfax many times to offer league fans similar prizes and says its great to give them something a little extra from time to time.
‘‘We don’t just deliver on what we promise,’’ he says. ‘‘We over deliver.’’
The Warriors play the Canberra Raiders at Mt Smart on June 27, from 5pm.
