The Warriors played their first NRL match in over two moths as the competition returned to the competitive field on the weekend.

And the New Zealand club made the most of it, beating the St George Illawarra Dragons 18-0 on the Central Coast.

It was an inspiring performance given how much the club has been through over the last two months.

It was also a record-breaker, as the Warriors completed 44 consecutive sets to open the game, and finished with 45 of 47 complete.

TVNZ's Guy Heveldt told Mike Hosking the team were extra motivated 

"It's very different to what they would normally do for a season and all this would be wasted if they didn't put in a good performance.

"Warriors fans hopefully know this, it is only one performance."
