MAD BUTCHER – ENTHUSED BY WARRIORS PROMISING START

Sir Peter Leitch, alias the Mad Butcher is most definitely the New Zealand Warriors Rugby League team’s most fervent fan and the Waiheke Island knight likes what he saw at Wellington during their impressive 20-12 win over the Newcastle Knights.

Sir Peter Leitch - Legend

Renamed One New Zealand Warriors this year, Sir Peter was particularly impressed with their goal line defence as well as their potent attack led by Shaun Johnson.

He singled out skipper, experienced forward Tohu Harris for his colossal effort both in attack and defence as the former Melbourne Storm star led by example.

Sir Peter organised a charter flight of supporters from Auckland to Wellington for the match and is hoping the Warriors can get up again for what he expects to be a real tough challenge against first round losers the Sydney Roosters in Sydney on Saturday.

New coach Andrew Webster has impressed the Mad Butcher with the way he goes about his work which is a main reason why he is optimistic the Warriors can make the top eight.

He also enjoyed the Dolphins winning start to their NRL history and said he had exchanged texts with their legendary coach Wayne Bennett, a good friend of his.

Listen to my (John Alexander) interview with Sir Peter this week from his home on Waiheke Island.
