NRL: How much does new NZ Warriors coach Andrew Webster know about the club?

New year, new coach for NZ Warriors, as Andrew Webster takes the helm of the Auckland club.

After working as Warriors assistant coach in 2015, Webster returns to lead the side, hoping to breaking into the top eight for the first time since 2018.

Arriving at Mt Smart with the personal recommendation of premiership winner Ivan Cleary, there's big wraps on Webster's future as a coach - but how well does he actually know the Warriors and their fans?

Is he aware of the famous '19th Warrior'? Has he met the 'Mt Smart Joker' yet?

Most importantly, does Webster know what 'let's gone' actually means?

Newshub sport presenter Andrew Gourdie caught up with the man himself, before the Warriors begin their season against Newcastle Knights on Friday.
