sport news Six months in a leaky boat. Why the New Zealand Warriors are the WORST ... trends now
When iconic Kiwi band Split Enz penned their hit song Six Months in a Leaky Boat, they might as well have been singing about the current New Zealand Warriors NRL outfit.
While Souths won 32-30 in their NRL clash in Magic Round, there is unlikely to be a ticker tape parade at Redfern after the Rabbitohs allowed a flurry of tries in the dying minutes as they clocked off completely.
It was a dramatic finish as Shaun Johnson attempted a two-point field goal and the Warriors challenged after the siren, looking for an accidental offside to get a shot at goal to tie up the scores.
But the damage had been done and now the Warriors are officially dead last in the NRL defensively and never deserved to get as close as they did.
'Glad we could fight back and make a contest of it, but man, our starts, we just can't give sides those kinds of leads,' Johnson said.

'It was the Rabbits of old … the way we played in that second half,' Bunnies captain Cody Walker conceded.
'Regardless of how we got the two points, that was the most important thing, that we got the two points.'
The match appeared dead and buried by halftime when the Bunnies were up 26-0 while the fumbling Warriors had 21 missed tackles. They finished the game with a total of 38 misses.
