I expect a better performance than round 1 but this is still a big danger game. Lodge won't be there, Radley is long odds and there is no guarantee either JWH or Manu will be back.

I think we will get the job done but not in a convincing way.

Roosters would want to win this match. They play Souths, Eels, Storm and Sharks after this week.

I Bleed Maroon

Hard one to tip. You would think the Warriors will take the momentum and run with it, but something tells me Robbo will be tearing the paint off the walls this week at training and the Sombreros will come out swinging.


We look woefully short in the forwards now.

JWH, Lodge, Radley, Crighton and Topouniua all missing.

We should have too much class from 1-7 to get the job done... if they get the ball in decent field position.

This will be a tight one and the warriors with the start is the value of the weekend.


Warriors looked full of life and energy last game. Good to see a Warriors team look like they're up for it at beginning of season with a nicely balanced squad, and they give it a good crack. Roosters win with a little more class to get their first win.

Rooster 22
Warrior 14

I reckon a few neutral fans will be cheering on the warriors in this one.
Probably because of their cool jerseys

Only takes 20 minutes for the Roosters to start phoning it in. The Warriors just need to hang with them for a while. If they keep it close in the early game then they are a chance.

They should also use the Dolphins blueprint and bash them. I thought the Roosters bench didn't offer much last week. While the Warriors have Dylan Walker, Bunty Afoa and Josh Curran on the pine. That's plenty to trouble the Roosters.

I'll take the upset. Warriors by 1 with Shaun Johnson making everyone's weekend.
