The Warriors have joined in on a try-celebration craze that is sweeping the NRL.

Josh Dugan was the first to make the news for his cheeky try celebration during his Cronulla debut last Friday night, with Blake Ferguson following his buddy's lead amid the Roosters shock loss to the Wests Tigers.

However, it wasn't just the poster boys for rugby league scandals getting involved in the fun, with two Warriors players also mimicking Dugan's post try celebration.

The strange act seen across the NRL over the weekend is actually an homage to the highly popular video game Fortnite - the movement Dugan simulated is the act a character in the game will do when they are using a health pack to heal themselves.

Fans of the video game were quick to make the connection, although many more people were left puzzled by the reference.
