Warriors learn from thumping by Panthers

WARRIORS captain Roger Tuivasa-Sheck said there were plenty of lessons to be learned from the humbling defeat against Penrith last week.

The New Zealand outfit was 22 points up at half-time (28-6) against the Panthers but capitulated after the break, conceding five unanswered tries in a gut-wrenching 36-28 defeat at Pepper Stadium.

Stephen Kearney's men are back on home soil tonight against the Dragons, playing for he first time in Hamilton and while he said he was still finding his feet as skipper, Tuivasa-Sheck said there was plenty for him to take out of last week's loss.

"It's about just trying to find a solution during those heated moments of time,” he said.

"Against the Penrith Panthers, we were going backwards, and there were moments where myself and the other leaders needed to step up.

"That was the massive lesson taken out of that game.”

Tuivasa-Sheck has something that he thinks could be an answer for Friday night's clash.

"We spoke a lot during the week about having a trigger call, where we can all come together and put our minds on one thing and our focus there,” he said.

"During the Penrith game, a lot of us were looking at our own individual errors when we needed to come together.”
