Match Preview: Wests Tigers vs. Warriors

Following a dominant win over the South Sydney Rabbitohs at ANZ Stadium last Friday night, the Wests Tigers will make their trip across the Tasman confident of extending their winning streak to three when they take on the New Zealand Warriors.

Playing in Wellington will certainly give the home side an advantage, but that won’t daunt the underrated visitors, who have already shown solid away form this year when they defeated the Gold Coast Titans in Round 2.

Read on for a full preview of the match including all the need-to-know match information, TV and live stream details as well as full match analysis.
