  • New Zealand Warriors have seen under 46.5 total points in 6 of their last 7 games.
  • New Zealand Warriors’ Euan Aitken has scored 6 tries in his last 7 games.
  • New Zealand Warriors have won 3 of their last 4 games against Canterbury Bulldogs.
  • Canterbury Bulldogs have lost 35 of their last 40 games.
  • Canterbury Bulldogs have lost 12 of their last 13 games.

Head to Head


Canterbury have a 21-16 advantage against New Zealand with 2 draws in 39 games. 

The Warriors have won three of the last four encounters including 20-14 last season.

Nathan Brown’s side repeated the deal with an 18-16 win against the Sharks last week. They trailed 16-6 at the break with second half tries to Reece Walsh and Euan Aitken getting it done.

Aitken has scored six tries in his last seven games and three in two since moving to the second row.
