The Tigers have won three straight against the Warriors and did the double over the Auckland-based side in 2016. The teams have played five straight matches that have topped 40 points.
Wests Tigers sit second last on the ladder with a 6-17 record. They enter this off back-to-back losses against Top 8 teams. They have not conceded more than 28 points in their last 10, a reasonable effort for a team that did so four times in the first 14 rounds. New Zealand have dropped eight straight games and have fallen to 13th on the ladder. They have conceded at least 22 points in all eight of those. They enter this off a 22-21 golden point home loss to Manly. They have not won away from Mt Smart this year.
The final game of the regular season pits the Tigers against the Warriors as they each attempt to end poor seasons on a positive note.
While both sides have been out of the finals race for months, there’s plenty of reason for the Tigers and Warriors to get motivated for this showdown.
The Tigers still aren’t assured of missing the wooden spoon, while the Warriors are staring down the barrel of a ninth consecutive loss after they were edged in a heartbreaker by the Sea Eagles in golden point last week.
Shaun Johnson’s return provided the Warriors with some much-needed spark, and his attacking power against the always-entertaining Tigers should ensure we see an exciting, free-flowing game with plenty of points on Sunday.
However, there’s no doubt the Tigers are operating at a much higher level than the Warriors at the moment, despite sitting below them on the ladder.
A Tigers win would actually seem them draw level on 18 points with the Warriors, and playing at home in Leichhardt with a three-match winning run over the Kiwi club should see the men in orange and black emerge triumphant one last time in 2017.
