6:09 am on 11 May 2014

The Warriors have brought up their first National Rugby League win at Eden Park in stunning fashion, crushing the Canberra Raiders 54-12.

Shaun Johnson starred for the hosts with 26 points including two tries as they got their first win at their adopted home ground after six attempts.

The centre Konrad Hurrell was in top form following a tumultuous week, scoring a try and running for 180 metres in the match.

Ben Matulino opened the scoring, followed by Hurrell before Johnson's first made it 18-0.

The Raiders bounced back through Jarrod Croker, but the Warriors wing Ngani Laumape scored to make it 24-6 at half-time.

The Warriors rolled on in the second half with tries to Johnson, Sam Tomkins, two for Manu Vatuvei and one for Jayson Bukuya.

Croker scored his second try in the final minute to provide some late consolation for the Raiders.
