Preview

Team News: Adam Keighran debuts at five-eighth for New Zealand, while Nathaniel Roache will start at hooker in place of the injured Isaac Luke. Will Hopoate has held onto the fullback spot, while Christian Crichton makes his first appearance for the Bulldogs on the wing. Dylan Napa is a straight swap for Dave Klemmer in the front-row.

Prediction: Two teams heavily tipped to miss the eight will be out to prove from the get go that they’re contenders. Fans will be treated to two brand spanking new halves combinations that have never taken the field together before. Isaac Luke is injured and Shaun Johnson has left, but the Warriors still have enough firepower to overcome a Bulldogs outfit tipped for the wooden spoon, with 71% of the Zero Tackle pool going with the hosts. Warriors by 8.
