Game Preview.


Key Match Ups.

Match Up #1: Roger Tuivasa-Sheck v James Tedesco

Roger is re-capturing the form that everyone loved him for in 2013 the year he won the comp with his former club and this weeks opponents the Roosters. While James Tedesco is struggling to fit into the systems at Roosters with his new team mates. 

Tedesco is eyeing off the NSW #1 jersey and will be wanting a big game this week. 


Match Up #2: Blake Green v Luke Keary

This is an interesting match up as Keary is a live wire half and plays to what he sees while Green is a calm and calculated half who brings a steadiness to the Warriors attacking structures. Keary and Green will go head to head this week and this could be a battle for the #6 NSW jumper with both players being talked about as options to partner Panthers half James Maloney. 

Match Up #3: David Fusitua v Blake Ferguson

These wingers are crucial with getting their teams sets off on the right foot and I’m sure both will have plenty of opportunities to score this weekend with both wingers showing great acrobatics at times this season to get the ball down in the corner. 

Nath’s Prediction: 
Warriors by 14
The Warriors has a hiccup v Storm but hit back last week against the Tigers. While Roosters have stuttered all year and seem to be struggling to find form. If Warriors forwards can dominate I can see the Roosters having enough attack to get the Warriors.
