The Warriors were handed another heavy defeat - at the hands of the Dragons tonight in Hamilton, a side they have beaten just once in their last 12 clashes.

The score to round up full time saw the Dragons win 30-14.  

The Warriors had looked to bounce back from last week's second half collapse in Penrith where they gave up a 26-8 halftime lead.

Tonight's match was Ben Matulino 200th game, seeing him become just the fourth player to make 200 appearances for the Warriors.

Matulino, 28, follows Stacey Jones (2005) and current teammates Simon Mannering (2014) and Manu Vatuvei (2015) in joining the club's elite 200-game club.

The club's first-ever home game in Hamilton was also a milestone occasion for second rower Bodene Thompson who played his 50th match for the Warriors, his 135th career game.
