Sydney Roosters vs New Zealand Warriors Preview
The Roosters play host to the Warriors at the SCG on Sunday in what is easily one of the most intriguing games of the weekend.
Although the scoreline didn’t reflect it, the tri-colours were no match last week for the Rabbitohs from start to finish – a performance Trent Robinson will be hoping his side can bounce-back from against an injury-riddled Warriors lineup.
Speaking of injuries, the Roosters have also been dealt a blow of their own with reports confirming Luke Keary has suffered a torn ACL.
Fortunately, there is some good news on the Victor Radley front with the star hooker set to return from a shoulder injury, but things aren’t as positive for the Warriors with Peta Hiku now ruled out with a knee injury.
The wear and tear following a short preseason has impacted just about every club in the league, but it’s of particular concern for the Warriors with troops already wearing thin.
Winning back-to-back games has proven a problem for New Zealand over the last three years, and their recent three-game losing streak to the Roosters really doesn’t favour an upset.
Sydney will no doubt be tested with several key playmakers on the sidelines for the coming weeks, but they can still rest easy knowing leading try scorers James Tedesco and Brett Morris remain fit.
The Roosters have to have this one with the Sharks and Storm coming up over the next fortnight, and it’s likely going to take much more than some Roger Tuivasa-Sheck heroics to keep Tedesco and Morris from scoring.
