THE TEAM NEWS
NEW ZEALAND WARRIORS
- New Zealand Warriors produced another alarming performance as they fell to Cronulla Sharks last week despite playing against just 12 men for much of the contest while they also failed to score when faced with 11.
- The Warriors trailed by just two points at the break but failed to make the numerical advantage count and conceded three second half tries without reply in what was a hugely disappointing effort. They are however boosted this week by the return of skipper Tohu Harris while Freddy Lussick will debut from the bench.
Starting 13: Walsh, Watene-Zelezniak, Vailea, Pompey, Montoya, Asi, Johnson, Fonua-Blake, Tevaga, Lodge, Harris, Murchie, Pene – Interchanges: Murdoch-Masila, Afoa, Katoa, Lussick – Reserves: Petterson-Robati, Kosi
Unavailable: Bailey Sironen, Jesse Arthars, Chanel Harris-Tavita, Josh Curran, Wayde Egan, Euan Aitken
SOUTH SYDNEY RABBITOHS
- South Sydney Rabbitohs’ lack of consistency in 2022 struck again as they failed to build on their win over Manly Sea Eagles by going down to a heavy loss in their game with Brisbane Broncos last week.
- The Rabbitohs were poor on both sides of the ball in the 12-32 reverse and to make matters worse, they have lost influential captain Cameron Murray with the lock suffering a shoulder injury.
Starting 13: Taaffe, Johnston, Paulo, Graham, Milne, Walker, Ilias, Tatola, Cook, Burgess, Koloamatangi, Host, Arrow – Interchanges: Nikorima, Moale, Havili, Knight – Reserves: Mamouzelos, Tass
Unavailable: Mark Nicholls, Latrell Mitchell, Jed Cartwright, Michael Chee Kam, Cameron Murray
New Zealand Warriors failed to make it back-to-back wins as they were unable to overcome 12-man Cronulla Sharks last week and their lacklustre attacking display will have set alarm bells ringing. Their defensive efforts were also not good enough but the same can be said of opponents South Sydney Rabbitohs in their clash with Brisbane Broncos. The Bunnies are missing some key men but still have enough in their side to get the job done here and make it six straight wins against the Warriors.
