New Zealand
Mt Smart Stadium


Being a Warriors fan must be incredibly frustrating! Last week, they blew a golden opportunity to put their hat in the top eight ring but blew it, and have another chance this week in the form of a severely-depleted, almost unrecognisable Broncos side.

The Broncos are missing the likes of Boyd, Milford and Thaiday just to name a few and while they do welcome back Ben Hunt after a lengthy injury layoff, it’s time for the Warriors to put their foot on the throat.

They have all the talent in the world that there really is no excuses anymore.

They registered 57 missed tackles last week, and a repeat will not be tolerated by Stephen Kearney as they take on an inexperienced Broncos line up. The Dragons ran right through the middle of them, an area of defence that must be tightened up.

The Broncos come in as clear outsiders and rightly so, however probably not as much as you’d expect. They have a poor record at Mt Smart stadium, however, if the origin replacements can dig in and grind out the hard yards, they’ll give themselves every chance against a mentally fragile Warriors side.

Warriors by 10.

  1. If ever there was a game to demonstrate the total farce of club football at SOO this has to be it. What a joke of a result. On any other weekend the Warriors would have lost this game by 20-30. Instead they are gifted a home game against the Broncos reserves.
