MOST NRL players don't relish the thought of taking on the giant Warriors pack.

But then again, everyone loves playing against their mates.

And that's why this Friday's home season opener for the Broncos at Suncorp Stadium will be special for Adam Blair.

This will be the first time the recently-named Kiwi captain will host the Warriors as a Bronco.

The Warriors haven't played in Brisbane since July of 2014.

And several of the Warriors played with Blair in the black and white of the Kiwi jersey as recently as November.

This is one he has been looking forward to.

"I really enjoy playing against them because I have a lot of New Zealand teammates there," said Blair.

"It really brings the best out in me.

"I like that bit of competition there.

"They are obviously coming up to Brisbane to try and do a job, but so are we.

"They won't be happy with how they went last week (a 34-26 loss to the Tigers).

"Everyone knows what the Warriors can do and we saw that in the second half there against the Tigers.

"There is obviously a bit of pressure on them so they will be coming up here ready to play.

"I am sure they will be ready to go."

No-one can give more insight into what the Warriors do best than Blair.

And although they were so disappointing last week - the Tigers led 28-4 at one stage - Blair knows that half Shaun Johnson can turn them around in one week.

"I am sure Shaun will turn up with a great attitude," he said.

"He leads them around the field and when he is playing well, they are all playing well."
