Warriors NRL Test match against Titans canceled due to bad weather in Queensland

The Warriors tryout against the Titans on Monday night has been canceled.

Torrential rain in Queensland meant officials had no choice but to call the game off.

The game, which was originally due to be played at the Moreton Daily Stadium in Redcliffe on Saturday, was postponed due to rain and severe flooding in the area – and the situation has not improved, with roads to the venue reportedly blocked on Monday . because of the urgency.

The Warriors won their preseason game against the Storm 30-16 on February 19. But this game was mainly about giving the team a run against an opposing team and Craig Bellamy rested a number of his key players.

The Titans trial would have been treated more like a regular NRL fixture, with Nathan Brown naming his strongest team possible and it would also have been Shaun Johnson’s first hit in Warriors colors since leaving the club in 2018.

The cancellation of the game will be a blow to the Warriors coaches, who were looking to decide whether Kodi Nikorima or Ash Taylor would partner with Johnson in the first round game against the Dragons.

It was also an opportunity for Rocco Berry and Viliami Vailea to assert their claims as first-choice centers for the start of the season, edging out Adam Pompey and Jesse Arthars.

Instead, the Warriors player will spend this week training at his base in Redcliffe, north Brisbane.

The players are also expected to get a few days off before focusing on the first round game against the Dragons at Sunshine Coast Stadium on Saturday March 12.
