Sydney Roosters vs New Zealand Warriors Preview

The 3-2 Sydney Roosters are coming off their first back-to-back win of the season, cantering to a 28-4 win in Townsville before digging deep to overhaul a plucky Broncos outfit 24-20 at Suncorp Stadium.

Joey Manu was immense in Brisbane, almost singlehandedly keeping the Roosters in the contest, while Sam Walker showed maturity beyond his years to take control and ice it. The heavyweights are playing well short of their potential overall but it is coming together.

Sio Siua Taukeiaho is back this week and Sam Verrills is set to make his first appearance of 2022.

The Warriors, meanwhile, are chasing four straight wins for the first time since 2018. They have got progressively better with each victory, following up a convincing 20-6 win over a poor Broncos side with a valiant golden point eclipse of the Cowboys.

Shaun Johnson’s innate clutch-ness proved decisive in the end, while Chanel Harris-Tavita had close to a career-best game and Euan Aitken was massive in the second-row. Marcelo Montoya is out after getting referred to the judiciary on a contrary conduct charge but international Dallin Watene-Zelezniak is back on the flank.

The Roosters have won their last four against the Warriors by an average margin of 24 points. The Tricolours won 32-12 in the teams’ only 2021 clash – a Round 4 Easter Sunday encounter at the SCG – after Addin Fonua-Blake’s early injury exit.

Another game where the favouritism is well-placed but the start appears too generous. The Warriors boast enough confidence and momentum to make a real game of this, even if an upset may be beyond them at this stage with the Roosters’ class advantage out wide set to prove vital.
