Highlight: A consistent Warriors side winning games away from home.
Lowlight: The above highlight probably being terribly wrong.

The most impressive Warriors outfits through history have always enjoyed a sprinkling of quality Australian talent. This time around they’re bolstered in the second-row by Australian and NSW forward Ryan Hoffman and Englishman Sam Tomkins who will be so much better in his second season in the NRL. But the main man is Shaun Johnson who could potentially hand the Warriors their first premiership if he can string together some consistency. Put some money on Johnson to win the 2015 Dally M too.
