    All Blacks captain Kieran Read behind new Warriors huddle

    Kieran Read has been helping out the Warriors players.

    The Warriors have credited All Blacks skipper Kieran Read for the breathing technique that helped propel them to their impressive start to the NRL season against the Rabbitohs.

    Following each try during Saturday's 32-20 win in Perth, the Warriors gathered in a huddle in the middle of the field and collectively took a few deep breaths as a way to stay on task and not get carried away.

    Warriors captain Roger Tuivasa-Sheck said they picked up the idea from Read when he addressed the squad during a pre-season camp in Papamoa in January.


    The Warriors began their NRL season with a win against Souths in Perth.

    It clearly benefited the team as they produced a controlled performance on attack, particularly after scoring points to keep the pressure on the Rabbitohs.

    Tuivasa-Sheck also feels it will come handy when the result is on the line at the back-end of a game - an area where the Warriors have struggled in recent seasons.

    "It's something we got off Kieran Read. It just brings everyone back in to refocus and get ready for what's next," Tuivasa-Sheck said.

    "Scoring tries, we were getting excited and everything was going well for us. But just from previous years we've been ahead a lot and lost in the last 10 minutes. So being able to reset and focus on the next task has been really helpful."
