First of all, Manly gave a guard of honour for the Warriors for everything they’ve done this season.
Then, the Warriors joined in and applauded Blair as he ran out for his 331st and final game, the most by a Kiwi NRL player, and the last of a 15-year career that included a stripped premiership at the Storm, a Battle of Brookvale survivor’s medal, and 51 Test appearances for New Zealand, including the glorious high of winning the 2008 World Cup.
Then, as the afternoon went on, he was handed the kicking tee for HIS ONLY CAREER ATTEMPT AT GOAL after the Warriors had iced the game at 40-24 with 5 minutes to go…
Probably should’ve had Patrick Herbert score a bit further infield.
Then, the Warriors gave their traditional haka for retiring players, which was so cool that even a couple of Sea Eagles players joined in.
Well done Adam, not just on this season, but on a fine career.
