New Zealand Warriors head coach Andrew Webster has pleaded fans in Hamilton to not invade the pitch during the game this weekend against Wests Tigers
In May, during Warriors match against Brisbane Broncos, there were a lot of interruptions during the game by the spectators which messed up the flow of the game, especially with them trying to make a comeback, it didn't help.
"It gets really annoying to be honest, especially when we're trying to build ourselves back into the game," said captain Tohu Harris post-game.
"It just burns, knowing that the other team is getting a rest, when we just want to keep going at them and keep trying to build pressure."
Andrew hopes the Hamilton crowd will show a little more respect for both teams.
He's all good with fans bringing that energy, going all wild and loud as long as they don't get on the field and mess up the game.
"I never want to be a partypooper. That's not my style, but we just want to create momentum throughout the whole performance," Andrew told Newshub.
He further explained how he wants to show how awesome Warrior fans are to the NRL. If they're impressed, more games could take place around Aotearoa.
"It's hard to create momentum, when people are running on the field. At the end of the day, we want NRL teams to take games to all these towns forever."
With saying that, he really loves and appreciates the fans, however such behaviour can result into losing "momentum" and change the game.
"If they do that, and fans are loud and being lunatics like we love them being, I think that's a good thing to celebrate. We've got the best fans ever, but if they're jumping on the field, we lose momentum as a footy team," Andrew said.
"As a club and a country, I don't think feel like they want to go back and take games there. I don't want the fans to miss out on those opportunities, because we love them and the support we've had this year has been amazing."
The Wahs are making it easy to cheer for them, so let's make it easy for them to play for us.
