With the majority of the Vodafone Warriors back training together, all are focussed on tomorrow night's game in Hamilton.

Indeed it will be a challenge as they take on the Wigan Warriors from the UK, the current Super League champions.

Māori star, Sam Rapira, will have the opportunity to captain the side. Despite the game set down for his home turf, he's still nervous.

He says they're not only focussing on tomorrow's game, but on the year ahead.

Sam will be supported by some of the strongest players in the side, with the World Cup players returning to the mix.  Ben Matulino says the team has come together well.

The question is, which of the two Warriors sides will take the first win?  With a loss already under their belts this year, the Vodafone Warriors will be looking to change that.
