Warriors vs Tigers Preview and Prediction

Two of the NRL’s most unpredictable sides square off in the first game on Friday night as the Warriors aim to break a two-game losing run against the Tigers.

The Warriors have been up and down all season and are yet to register back-to-back victories. They come into this encounter on the back of three defeats from their last four matches, including back-to-back losses against the Sea Eagles and Eels, where they conceded a combined 72 points.

To be fair to the Warriors, those two teams are amongst the form sides in the competition at the moment and they managed to give Manly a big score at Lottoland.

However, they started poorly against the Eels in Magic Round and although they clawed their way back into the contest, the Kiwi side left themselves with too much to do and ultimately went down 34-18.

Meanwhile, it might be too much to say the Tigers are in resurgent form given they haven’t won back-to-back matches in almost 12 months, but they have won two of their last three heading into this showdown.

The Tigers upset the Dragons and lost to the Titans before producing their best performance of the season in Magic Round against the Knights.

Michael Maguire’s positional changes worked a treat as the likes of Luke Brookes, Moses Mbye and Adam Doueihi starred in a dominant 36-18 victory.

However, the Tigers are as erratic as they come and I’m going to need to see more before tipping them against sides that are challenging for the eight.

The Warriors haven’t been all that bad over the last fortnight and are 6-6 since moving to Gosford – they can return to the winners circle on Friday night.
