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. 

You can follow all the action right here on our live blog which will provide, colour, updates and most importantly results from all of Day Two's action-packed games
