Warriors Line up to face Glendale Raptors Announced


The Utah Warriors name their 23 man squad to take on the Glendale Raptors tonight at Rio Tinto Stadium.

Coach Alf Daniels announced the Team Co-Captains Paul Lasike and Saia Uhila who will lead the Warriors in their inaugural season.

With a mixture of local talent and other domestic players, the Utah Warriors are excited about this opportunity to get on the pitch together for the first time. 

Co-captain Paul Lasike said "All the boys are just amped to ready to step out on the field. It's been a long time coming for us, and this community, but it's finally here and we're ready. We know it will be a tough task against a quality opponent, but this is what we train for. We put in the hard yards in training and now it's time to show what we've got."
