It is nothing personal but the Warriors clearly owe the Panthers on Friday night.
While Manu Vatuvei's imminent departure has dominated the headlines, the Warriors head into the clash at Mt Smart looking to atone for what was their lowest point of the season back in round 10 in Penrith.
Leading 28‑6 at the break, the Auckland outfit capitulated in the wake of a Panthers onslaught, conceding five second‑half tries to lose 36‑28.
It was an astonishing result, even by Warriors standards. But having had more than two months to stew on the outcome, halfback Shaun Johnson is determined to set the record straight.
The Warriors will take on the Panthers at 8pm Friday.ADVERTISEMENT Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
