National Rugby League Club New Zealand Warriors To Play Three Games At Eden Park
National Rugby League side New Zealand Warriors "are set to play three NRL matches at Eden Park" in '14, according to Michael Burgess of the NEW ZEALAND HERALD. It represents a 300% increase on previous seasons and "signals the first step in an impending permanent move to the venue." No dates or opponents "have been finalised, with the NRL draw for 2014 yet to be made, but it is likely that the first match of the season will be played at Eden Park, if the Warriors are scheduled a home game in round one." The other two proposed Eden Park matches "would be spread across the year." The extra games "are unlikely to conflict with the Blues' schedule, as most of the Super 15 games played at the park are on Friday or Saturday nights, while the majority of Warriors matches fall on a Sunday" (NZ HERALD, 8/25).
