Other Teams[edit]

The Warriors had feeder agreements with the Newtown Jets in the NSWRL Premier League and Brisbane Souths in the Queensland Cup.[2] Players not selected for the first grade side would be sent to one of these clubs for the weekend. This arrangement also worked the other way when the Warriors signed Jason Bell from the Jets mid way through the season and the Brisbane Souths captain, David Mulhall, made his debut in Round 20. Occasionally players were also released to Bartercard Cup teams.[3]

Awards[edit]

Robert Mears won the clubs Player of the Year award.[4]
