It's was the tournament we'd been waiting for all summer and the NRL Auckland Nines didn't disappoint yesterday.

Home favourites the New Zealand Warriors lived up to their hype as tournament favourites with two fine wins over the Canberra Raiders and Manly Sea Eagles at Eden Park. Can they replicate that success today and keep the Nines trophy in Auckland?

What about the other 16 NRL clubs who stand in their way? The Paramatta Eels also looked strong yesterday and no-one can rule out the ever-imposing Melbourne Storm, Sydney Roosters and South Sydney Rabbitohs.

Opinion poll

What should the Warriors do with Dane Nielsen?

Try and offload him. He's been a disappointment.

Nothing. He's got another year on his contract.

Give him more of a chance to showcase his skills.

Re-sign him. He's an Origin rep and solid defensive centre.
