New Zealand Warriors v Sydney Roosters

The New Zealand Warriors take on the Sydney Roosters in this round 10 match up from the NRL and the great news for rugby fans is that you can watch all of the action live online via our NRL live streaming partners.

The Warriors went into the 2018 with little expectation on them but after impressing in the early going, they now go into each game looking for the win whilst the Roosters were expected to be pushing for top spot but they have made an indifferent start.

Despite some wobbles and some injury issues, the Warriors go into the round in 2nd place and just 2 points off of top spot.

The Roosters on the other hand go into the round in 6th place, with 5 wins and 4 losses but such is the closeness of the NRL they are level on points with the Knights in 10th and go into this game needing to put a run of wins together.

Form

The Warriors have won 3 of their last 5 matches and 4 of their last 5 games at their Mount Smart home.

The Roosters have also won 3 of their last 5 matches and they have the same record on the road but they did lose heavily last time out on the road against the Dragons.

Team News

The Warriors will be without Shaun Johnson so Maon Lino goes into the halfback role. Jaz Tevaga is in reserve with injury doubts over Isaac Luke and Blair despite been named to start.

The Roosters name an unchanged squad.

Prediction

This is a difficult match to predict as it see’s the aggressive attacking play of the Warriors go up against the highly structured and defensive style of the Roosters.

If the Roosters were playing at the top of their ability, they would be the big favourites in this game due to the incredible depth of talent they have but they are far from that and the Warriors are always a tough challenge at home where the large and loud crowds always inspire the Warriors players to up their levels and give 100% commitment.

In what will likely be a close game, that extra edge could, and likely should, prove the difference as we are going to back the home side for the win.
