    The New Zealand Warriors are crap, a school didn’t like a couple of students asking them questions relating to their awfulness;

    “An Auckland school has disciplined two pupils for asking questions deemed disrespectful to visiting Warriors players earlier this month.

    Blockhouse Bay Intermediate principal Michael Malins confirmed to NZME that the students had to write apology letters to the struggling Auckland NRL club and were also given “time out”, but did not reveal the exact wording of the questions.

    However, according to the report, one student asked why the team lost so often while the other asked where they sat on the competition table.”
