The Raiders are currently in fifth position on the ladder and will be looking to pressure for a spot on the top four, while the Warriors are looking to reap the rewards of a strong season with another win.

Raiders Form & Team News


The Raiders have been very strong once again this season, and last year's Grand Finalists are searching for a spot in the vital top four leading into the finals series.

Too strong for the Dragons last week, they ran away to a dominant 37-8 victory away from home.

Siliva Havili and Sam Stone swap between hooker and bench roles in the only change for the week.

Sia Soliola has been named in the reserves and is a chance of returning from a facial fracture.

Warriors Form & Team News


On the back of massive sacrifices made by the whole team, the Warriors were the team that every NRL fan wanted to see make the final. But those hopes were dashed last weekend.

Putting up yet another extremely brave performance, the Warriors lost 22-14 to Cronulla as the Sharks took the last spot in the top eight.

Following last week's loss, loan players Danial Alvaro and George Jennings have returned to their Australian sides, while Jamayne Taunoa-Brown has also been suspended.

Adam Keighran starts at centre, Hayze Perham is on the wing and Lachlan Burr will start at prop. Eliesa Katoa returns on the bench alongside debutant Tom Ale.

Raiders vs Warriors Match Up


Former Warriors star Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad comes up against superstar Roger Tuivasa-Sheck in a massive battle of the fullbacks. 

Tuivasa-Sheck needs no introduction, and could arguably be the best fullback in the game if he was playing behind a pack as dominant as the Roosters provide for James Tedesco. 

Nicoll-Klokstad has been one of the most improved fullbacks in the game since joining the Raiders last season, and he will be vital to his team's chances in the finals if he finds his best form.

  • The Raiders have scored 34 points or more in 4 of their last 5 games.
  • The Warriors have won 3 of their last 5 games against the Raiders.
