All the action as the Warriors took on the Wests Tigers in Sydney.

Benji on the prowl

The Warriors are wary of a revitalised Benji Marshall ahead of Sunday's match, after his impressive start to the season. The 34-year-old former Kiwis captain, along with Robbie Farah, were key to the Wests Tigers' 20-6 first round win over Manly.


"He's been a good player for such a long time," said Warriors halfback Blake Green. "He's a great competitor, with plenty of skill about him and he is one we have to look out for over the weekend."

Marshall, who first faced the Warriors in 2005 (a 24-6 win), will play his 291st NRL match on Sunday. It's also his 16th clash with the Warriors.

Warriors reveal their joker in the pack

Prop Bunty Afoa is a hard man on the field, and has become a fan favourite, with his charges into the heart of the opposition forwards. He's also quick with a quip, always taking the chance for some gentle ribbing.

"Off the field, he is a bit of a jokester, always mocking the boys," said Blake Ayshford. "I'm usually on the receiving end. I don't know why...probably because I am from Australia and I'm older than him.

The former Tiger and Shark also gets some grief about his haircuts

"I get them from home, because I don't care too much, so every time I came in he is saying 'Oh, who did the haircut? Let's get the barber.'"
