This Warriors Life was established in 2018 to celebrate and feed the passion of supporters of the NRL's New Zealand Warriors, providing news, interviews, opinion, features, history content and podcasts for Warriors fans.

The sports media landscape has been turned on its head in 2020, with rugby league coverage in NZ and Australia taking a massive hit courtesy of journalist redundancies and publications either axed or put on indefinite hiatus in the wake of COVID-19.

TWL has not been immune: our sole/sponsor of the past two years has been forced to pull their support due to the massive impact of the coronavirus sports shutdown on their business - but we are determined to continue to provide high-quality, expert coverage for Warriors fans. 

TWL will always remain free, but aside from the enormous time commitment there's costs to cover in the running the TWL site and Podcast so we're asking our followers who are keen and able to chip in a couple of bucks and become a This Warriors Life patron. 

Take a look at the different tiers and their respective benefits - and if any of them sound like you, we'd be pumped to have you on-board! And if not, that's all good too, we still appreciate you engaging with our articles, podcasts and posts.

The more support TWL gets, the more content we'll be able to produce for the fans!
