A lasting legacy of former Warriors CEO Mick Watsons time at the club was the 1 million dollar salary cap breach from the 2005 season. The club were handed a $430,000 financial penalty and more telling a 4 point competition point deduction before season 2006 had even got under way. In the process the New Zealand Warriors broke a 99 record by being the first time in almost 100 years to start a season on less than zero. The club appealed against the points deduction while accepting the financial penalty but the NRL incested that the points deduction would stand. The lost 4 points would prove to be difference between making the finals and missing them for the Warriors. On the field the Warriors were a stable unit of 25 players and injuries treated the club lightly compared to some. Long term Warriors were set to exit Mt Smart at seasons close with the most notable name being that of club legend Stacey Jones but the Warriors faithfull weren't to know at the time that the little general would return the club just 3 years later. Also departing were Monty Betham, Tevita Leo-Latu, Iafeta Palea'asina, Francis Meli and Karl Temata.
