Shaun Johnson's Set to Light Up Go Media Stadium This Saturday

Fellas, it’s official! The man, the myth, the legend Shaun Johnson is back from his one-month pectoral injury, and he' has been named to play in this Saturdays Sold out game. 

Johnson will be making his grand return in the highly anticipated match against the Melbourne Storm at Go Media Stadium, Auckland New Zealand.

The Warriors have had a tough run against Melbourne, with 15 losses stretching it all the way back to 2015.

The Warriors are coming off a smashing victory against the Cowboys in Townsville last Saturday night, their second straight win.

That’s right, the boys have won three games in a row, taking down the 2023 champions, the Penrith Panthers, as well as the Redcliffe Dolphins and the North Queensland Cowboys, following a five-game winless streak.

Shaun Johnson's comeback couldn't have been better timed, is this the boost the Warriors need to keep their winning streak alive?

Its due to kick off Saturday 15th July at 7:30pm at Media Stadium in Auckland, New Zealand. If you didn't manage to score yourself a ticket to the sold out game, dont worry, you can catch all the action on Sky Sports at 7:30pm Saturday 15th June.

Gather the mates, set up the big screens and get ready for one hell of game of rugby league.
