Johnson catalyst for Warriors’ return to NRL finals – assistant coach
By Alex Powell
Returning playmaker Shaun Johnson can be the key difference-maker for NZ Warriors’ top eight ambitions in 2022, assistant coach Justin Morgan says.
After an up and down year, the Warriors will finish their 2021 season on Sunday afternoon, taking on Gold Coast Titans.
But the 2021 season will most likely linger as a ‘what could have been’ for the Warriors, having missed out on the top eight by two wins and four competition points.
What’s more, the Kiwi side could have just as easily managed those two extra wins, after losing eight games by eight points or loss this year.
Already with the wheels in motion for 2022, the club re-signed former halfback Shaun Johnson from Cronulla Sharks in June, with the club’s record points scorer returning to the Warriors on a two-year deal.
And coming back to the club older and wiser, Morgan is certain that Johnson is exactly what the Warriors need to clinch those close games next season.
“You buy experienced players and players that can get you home in big games,” Morgan says.

Gold Coast Titans have watched both top eight rivals suffer defeats to begin the weekend to leave their finals fate firmly in their own hands despite losing for the third time in successive matches last week.
Their hearts were broken by a last-gasp Newcastle Knights field goal as they were edged 15-14 in a nervy encounter but with Cronulla Sharks failing to secure their position in eighth spot on Friday, the Titans know a win by 11 points or more would book their spot in the finals.

New Zealand Warriors have been made to pay for their inconsistency having missed out on a spot in the top eight thanks to back-to-back losses, the latest coming against Canberra Raiders in a must-win game last week.
To make matters worse for the Warriors, they blew a 16-0 lead with them going on to concede 28 unanswered points in what turned into a disappointing loss but they will look to end their year on a high by ending with a win here.
