A triumph for caretaker manager Stacey Jones is how a veteran sports commentator hails the New Zealand Warriors’ return to Mt Smart Stadium after 59 away games.

The Warriors beat the West Tigers 22-2 – yesterday in their first home game in three years.

Ken Laban says the beleaguered team got a lot of criticism – and a lot of love – but the enthusiasm of the Mt Smart crowd could be seen as a vote of confidence the coach can offer.

“He’s a popular and iconic figure in the game and he’s had great success so for him to get a win of this magnitude in front of a full house and they’ve had 59 away games in the last three years , so it was a wonderful comeback. Congratulations to the Warriors and their entire organization,” he said.
