    My name is Statler and I predict that Manu Vatuvei will win by 20 points. Uate always fails to contain the Beast.

    Warriors to bounce back off the back of Knights complacency in downing the Grubs.

    Warriors by 12.

    Ah yes, lets see what this roller-coaster Knights last month dishes up for us next.

    Hard game to pick. Both teams are going through a bit of a transition this season and have been up and down in patches during games let alone week to week.

    Not sure why this is a Rivalry round game though. Sure there's been some good games between the two, but on the list of hated rivals I'd think Warriors/Knights would be well down on each others lists.

    Again... Rivalry Round isn't going to mean every team will be having a massive rivalry game, hence why it's spread over two rounds.

    Warriors v Broncos (1995 opener) was the Warriors, Knights/Manly (97 GF) are the obvious ones for each side.

    Massive is one thing, completely irrelevant is another. It wouldn't be hard to find 2 rounds worth of rivalries (one massive as you put it, one more historic or centered around a certain game/occurance.)

    This has the potential to be a cracking game with both teams seasons on the line just about.

    I never know what to expect of either side but my head tells me the warriors should do it comfortably.

    Given there are 24 other rounds to schedule including a heritage round, I reckon it'd be extremely difficult.

    Given we've seen Dogs/Eels, Dragons/Sharks, Knights/Manly and Roosters/Rabbits in the first week and still have Titans/Broncos, Manly/Dogs, Tigers/Cowboys (95, L'OD), Eels/Storm (09) and Souths/Saints to come, I'd say they've done pretty well tbh

    Exactly, there's 24 rounds, 26 rounds in total with 2 rivalry + 1 heritage. That leaves 23 other rounds that the Warriors could play the Knights. Would not be hard at all to find both teams worthy rivalries.

    granted, I couldn't really care less about naming the round itself and I'm just being picky because I have a day off and I can be picky, but still, if the NRl want rivalry round to be a focus then they need to actually put more thought/effort into it rather than 2 half rounds of rivalry matches.

    Another match I'm looking forward to.

    You'd think Warriors at home would be too good for a disappointing Knights outfit but stranger things have happened. Really hope the Knights win to make the run to the finals just that more interesting.

    However, Warriors will be furious they didn't come away with the points last week. Warriors by 16.
