The Warriors have confirmed the
signing of Ligi Sao who will return to
Auckland on a two-year contract for
2016 and 2017.
The 22-year-old Manly for ward left
for Australia in 2013 after making 36
NYC Holden Cup appearances for the
Junior Warriors and he played in their
2011 grand final win.
Sao has made 15 of his 16 NRL
appearances this year for the Sea Eagles
and he revealed returning home was the
main reason for his decision.
“I ’ve got the rest of this season ahead
of me here at Manly but I’m excited the
Warriors have given me the chance to
come home,” he said.
“It’s a new challenge for me and
one I’m looking for ward to. I ’ve really
enjoyed my time with Manly and have
been lucky to be around some great
players but it ’s going to good being back
in Auckland for next season.”
Sao played alongside some of the
Warriors current NRL players during
his time with the junior Warriors,
including the likes of Konrad Hurrell,
Raymond Faitala-Mariner, David
Fusitua and Albert Vete, and head
coach Andrew McFadden said they had
been watching him since he left the
“He has developed well at Manly,
especially this year with a lot more
exposure at NRL level,” he said.
“He helps our depth with our middle
players and increases competition for
spots. It’s also great to be able to bring
Ligi back home.” — NZ Herald

What was a day
of firsts for junior
rugby league players
in Northland was
also a day of firsts for
the Penrith Panthers’
manager, and legend of the game, Phil
The former New South Wales State
of Origin coach and NRL player, along
with talent scout and player manager
Darryl Mather, made his first appearance
in Whangarei to plant the seed for
future relations between the Panthers
and Rugby League Northland (RLN).
Putting on a coaching clinic for a squad
of junior players, Gould hinted it “won’t
be the last time” he visits the region.
“The welcome was outstanding, the
boys really put in and everyone here’s
been really hospitable,” he said.
Following in the footsteps of current
Penrith players hailing form Northland,
such as the likes of Sam McKendry,
Elijah Taylor, Corey Harawira-Naera,
Kake Steele and James Fisher-Harris, an
array of up-and-coming NRL hopefuls
fronted the clinic in a bid to make an
impression on Gould and Mather.
Though the Northland boys lacked
size when compared to players in other
provinces of New Zealand and across
the ditch, Gould said many of them
made up for it through natural ability.
“The two things today that stoodout
was the enthusiasm of the players, they
have a great passion for the game, and
the second thing was how much they
improved the further the session went,”
“It’s one thing to try and rate their skill
level at this time (but) it’s more important
to rate whether they ’re coachable and can
learn the skills with good coaching. I’ve
got no doubt that a lot of those players
can improve tremendously if they know
what to practise and how to practise — I
was really impressed with them.”
Looking to establish a strong future
relationship with the Penrith NRL
side, RLN general manager Alex Smits
said Gould’s presence was the result of
18-months hard work between himself
and Mather to get the league great up
“ We’ve spent the last four years building
up governance and structure, now we
want to start building the performance
pathways for players,” Smits said.
“ We’re working through some details,
Phil seems pretty happy in working with
us so hopefully the details will come for
us soon. ”
From Gould’s point of view, the time
to build a Northland bond is nigh.
“The people that are doing the work
up here (Northland) are obviously very
passionate about it and that ’s good for
our code,” Gould said.
“ While we’ve got enthusiastic people
here in the North of New Zealand, we’re
looking to promote the game and we’ll
always be around to lend a hand. There’s
only one NRL team in New Zealand
and that ’s the Warriors — they can’t take

Sao returning to Warriors
Shaun Kenny-Dowall has not appeared
in a Sydney court this morning as
planned over domestic violence charges.
The Roosters and Kiwis centre was
admitted to hospital last night after
undergoing a mental health assessment.
Kenny-Dowall’s lawyer did not enter a
plea with the league player excused from
his court appearance and the matter
returning to court in August.
The allegations against Kenny-Dowall,
include six counts of common assault
against his former partner Jessica Peris.
The immediate playing future of the
27-year-old remains unclear. He will
not play in the Roosters’ round 20 NRL
clash with Wests Tigers tomorrow.
It will be the second match the Kiwi
international has missed since he was
arrested and charged by police last
Saturday. — AAP
