The Warriors last savoured the sweet taste of victory on July 12, with their round 16 28-14 win over Melbourne Storm.

That game featured plenty of highlights of the Warriors at their attacking best with halfback Shaun Johnson running the show and Nathan Friend back-flipping his way on to ESPN.

The future looked bright, with the Warriors claiming a top four berth and looking on course for their first finals appearance since the 2011 grand final.

It hasn't quite worked out that way however, with the Penrose-based club slumping to seven straight defeats against the Sydney Roosters, Manly, Cronulla, St George-Illawarra, Penrith, North Queensland and Wests Tigers.

Andrew McFadden's side are desperate to finish the season on a high and now need a last round away win over the Canterbury Bulldogs on Sunday, to avoid equalling their worst record for consecutive defeats from 2012, when they lost eight straight.

While we wait for that elusive victory to come, let's take a look back at the many world and national events and stories that have hit the news since Warriors fans last wore a smile.
