The 11th placed Warriors host the 12th placed Bulldogs in what is shaping up as a must-win match, with both sides sitting a win outside the Top 8. The Warriors will be sweating on the fitness of five-eighth Kieran Foran, while the Bulldogs will have Origin trio, Brett Morris, Josh Jackson and David Klemmer backing up from Wednesday night. The Bulldogs should also welcome back Josh Reynolds from injury as Des Hasler’s men look to kickstart their season.
The Bulldogs have won 6 of the last 7 matches against the Warriors including a 24-12 Round 3 win this year. NSW winger Brett Morris crossed for a double in the 12-point win in Otago.
New Zealand have a 6-8 record and sit outside the Top 8 after 15 rounds. They rank 10th in attack and 11th in defence and have been disappointing throughout the season. The Warriors have won just 3 of their last 8 games but enter this off a 34-12 drubbing of the Titans on the Gold Coast. The Warriors are 5-2 at Mt Smart this year. Canterbury also have a 6-8 record and actually have the sixth best defence in the premiership but have been let down by an insipid attack that ranks last averaging just 13.9 points per match. Canterbury had dropped four straight before a 16-2 upset win over St George Illawarra.
With 15 NRL rounds in the bank for 2017, the Warriors and Bulldogs sit on equal points in 11th and 12th spot respectively with just 24 differential points separating the teams as they prepare to do battle in the first game on Friday night.
Both the Warriors and Bulldogs registered nice victories that relieved some mounting pressure surfacing at the clubs in their last match before last week’s bye, with the Warriors crushing Gold Coast 34-12 and Canterbury downing the Dragons 16-2.
It’s been yet another inconsistent season for the Warriors, but if everything clicks into gear, they can be near unstoppable, as was the case against the Titans.
