How the Warriors shape up in 2013




Premierships: Nil

Finishes over the past three seasons: 2012 - 14th, 2011 - runners-up, 2010 - qualifying finalists

Coach: Matthew Elliott

Captain: Simon Mannering

Gains: Thomas Leuluai (Wigan), Todd Lowrie (Melbourne), Dane Nielsen (Melbourne), Dominique Peyroux (Gold Coast), Harry Siejka (Penrith).

Losses: Lewis Brown (Penrith), Micheal Luck (retirement), James Maloney (Sydney Roosters), Ukuma Ta'ai (Huddersfield).

Strength: Despite last year's disappointment, the core of the side which reached the 2011 grand final remains. Talent is not an issue throughout a deep Warriors squad.
Weakness: Lack of continuity. For the second year in a row, the Warriors will go into the season with a new coach and new ideas, meaning it could take a while to find their feet.

Money Man: Shaun Johnson. Dropped for the final match of the Warriors' forgettable 2012 season, but the talented playmaker remains the club's most lively attacking threat.

One to watch: Konrad Hurrell. The outside back brought his tackle-busting ability from the Toyota Cup into his debut NRL season, finishing with the club's equal-best haul of 12 tries, including 11 in a seven-match stretch.

Best team: Kevin Locke, Manu Vatuvei, Dane Nielsen, Konrad Hurrell, Bill Tupou, Shaun Johnson, Thomas Leuluai, Sam Rapira, Nathan Friend, Ben Matulino, Simon Mannering (capt), Feleti Mateo, Todd Lowrie.
Interchange: Jacob Lillyman, Russell Packer, Elijah Taylor, Ben Henry.
Predicted finish: 6th
