Formed as the Auckland Warriors in 1995 before rebranding as the New Zealand Warriors in 2001, the Warriors have known relative success in their short history with 2 visits to the NRL Grand Final in their first 20 years of existence.
The club have also enjoyed success in the reserve grade, with 2 titles in 2010 and 2011; where they have developed a number of New Zealand players who have now gone on to represent their country.
The Warriors fan base is large and vocal which has led to their fans been known as the ‘Warrior Nation’ and even when playing over the Tasman Sea in Australia, the Warriors always have a big following.
The club play their home games in Auckland although thy do take at least 1 game as season ‘on the road’ to Wellington to showcase the sport across the country.
As New Zealand’s full time professional Rugby league team, the Warriors are hugely popular within NZ as well as the millions of Kiwis living in Australia and around the world.
The fact they are an expansion team and that so many New Zealand stars have come over to Europe to play has also lead to a large following within the UK.
The New Zealand Warriors play most of their games at Mount Smart Stadium in Auckland but have recently had huge success taking games ‘on the road’ to other parts of New Zealand.
The Warriors act in a similar way to the Catalans Dragons in Europe, by being the starting point for many New Zealand players. This of course has led to the international side becoming the world champions and if this success could be repeated by the Warriors, the game in New Zealand could be propelled to a whole new level.
On the field, the Warriors are a bit of a yo-yo team, some season they will easily finish in the top 8 but other seasons they struggle towards the foot of the table. This just goes to highlight the high quality of the NRL competition, which you can enjoy watching.
