Steve Price won't be back
We've just heard the news on Newstalk ZB; Steve Price has played his last game for the Vodafone Warriors.
Price has been battling a foot injury since the end of last season, and despite off-season surgery, he's simply run out of time to get on the field in his retirement season. He's scheduled for more surgery at the end of this week; season-ending surgery. That's a huge shame for the Warriors. Price has been a breath of fresh air both on and off the field.
It would have been great if the Warriors faithful could have the chance to give him a proper farewell at the end of his last game, but that's not to be. We're sure that Price will not have made the decision to have further surgery lightly.
But time marches on, and a career beyond the playing field beckons. All we can do is salute Price for the fantatstic contribution he has made to the Warriors since crossing the ditch. He leaves a hole that will be nigh on impossible to fill.
