Wests Tigers vs Warriors Preview & Prediction

It’s been a tough start to the season, but one of the Tigers or Warriors will be tasting their first victory of the season at Campbelltown Stadium on Friday night.

Michael Maguire is already under immense pressure just two rounds into the season following the Tigers’ embarrassing performance last weekend against the Knights.

After pushing the Storm in the opening round, Tigers fans were cautiously optimistic, but their team slumped back into old habits with their dismal 26-4 loss to Newcastle.

The Tigers were blown off the park and currently have the third worst completion rate in the NRL, which obviously doesn’t help matters. Discipline continues to be a problem at the Tigers and there’s no signs it’s going to improve any time soon.

Meanwhile, the Warriors have battled hard in both their matches, but gone down by 1-12 margins to the Dragons and Titans.

Unlike the Tigers last week, the effort was there from the Warriors as they recovered from a 12-point deficit to lead the Titans at half-time, but they couldn’t go on with the job, failing to score a single point in the second half.

It’s looking like another long year for the Warriors, but hopefully they will be able to return home to New Zealand at some point.

VERDICT:

Two struggling sides down on confidence who are desperate for the two points should see a relatively low-scoring and scrappy game play out in Campbelltown.

It’s been the Warriors who have come out on top in recent times, winning the last three meetings – and all three games have been decided by six points or less. It’s a tough one to call, but you can’t back the Tigers after last week’s showing, so we’ll be siding with the Warriors in another tight one (Best Warriors H2H win odds $1.77 with bet365.)
