The New Zealand Warriors have suffered a setback in their quest to add to their tally of eight wins this season against the Sydney City Roosters in Sydney tonight.
With wet conditions prevailing, attacking football was out.
Disappointing for the Warriors that was, as they dominated possession over the opening quarter of the match.
A lead would have been handy given the added territory this had gained them.
Alas it was not to be as it was the Roosters who were the first to score, with Aiden Guerra diving over in the 36th minute.
Not long after it was the turn of Shaun Kenny-Dowell to gather a Anthony Minichello grubber and score in the right corner, giving the Roosters a 12-0 lead at the break.
