The Warriors have had their first setback of the new season with Dominique Peyroux suspended for the opening game of their campaign.

The utility player made an early guilty plea to the charge of dangerous contact - unnecessary head/neck pressure -  and was given a one-week ban by the NRL judiciary.

The incident occurred during the Warriors' 18-36 loss in a trial game against the Gold Coast Titans last Sunday. Although it took place in a trial game, the one game suspension was moved to round one of the NRL competition, rather than the next pre-season hit out. 

It means Peyroux, who is in the second year of his contract with the club, won't travel with the team to Paramatta to face the Eels on March 9.

How do you think Sam Burgess will go in union?

He'll be a superstar. He's a real talent.

It will take him a while to find his feet.

I give him two years before he's back playing league.

Who cares? He's crossed over to the dark side.
