Canterbury Bulldogs vs New Zealand Warriors Preview
Both the Bulldogs and the Warriors will be hoping to build on their respective performances last week.
New Zealand took the Panthers right down to the wire in their six-point loss, but this does shape up as a ‘now or never’ type game as they currently find themselves six points off the eight.
The Bulldogs can also hold their heads high after putting a real scare into the Tigers last Sunday.
Canterbury was unlucky to lose on a last-second Luke Brooks field goal, but there was plenty to like about the way the Dogs fought up until the final siren.
Will Hopoate could potentially return this week, while the Warriors carry on with their long list of ailments and outs.
This is by far one of the toughest games to pick of the entire round, but it’s worth giving the Kiwis the benefit of the doubt based on last weeks performance against the ladder leaders.
The Warriors are 6-5 at the line following a previous loss, while it’s worth noting these two sides both rank top five in missed tackles, so don’t be surprised if we get a high-scoring game.
