New Zealand Warriors have looked really competitive so far this season and made it two wins from three as they did a superb job of overcoming North Queensland Cowboys on the road last week. They now host a Canterbury Bulldogs outfit that also boast two wins from three and there is little to split the pair based on how they have performed so far this season but something has to give here. However, the Dogs do not tend to travel well and the Warriors enjoy playing on home soil and they can make it five straight victories over the Bulldogs.
