The Gold Coast Titans have breathed a sigh of relief today as the NRL announced that the New Zealand Warriors will remain in the 2020 competition despite the hysteria around coronavirus.
The multiple Wooden Spoon-winning club had earlier expressed concern over being the only absolute basket case club left in the competition if the Warriors had been sent home.
Thankfully for the Gold Coast outfit, the Warriors will now become the Pakistan of the NRL and play all their “home” games in Australia.
A spokesperson for the Titans told The Waterton Sports Chronicle the situation has “vastly improved” their chances of finishing the 2020 season without the wooden spoon.
“We were becoming quite concerned that if they (the Warriors team) weren’t playing, we’d be basically guaranteed the spoon. Now they’re going to play the whole season away from home, so I’m pretty sure they have bigger problems than coronavirus at this point.” he quipped.
This reporter caught up with some of the Warriors boys as they took in the nightlife scene at Newcastle following being spanked by the Knights last night.
“Yeah it’s pretty choice eh bru.” one of the boys said.
