Wests Tigers Holden Cup side can all but secure their spot in the 2015 finals series when they take on the New Zealand Warriors at Campbelltown Stadium on Sunday.

The match shapes to be an exciting one, with both the Wests Tigers (6th) and New Zealand Warriors (8th) separated by just one point heading into Sunday's match.

Wests Tigers head into the match with four wins and a close two-point loss in their last five games, while the Warriors have suffered four defeats in their last five outings.

Obed Karwhin has been a strike weapon out wide for the home side — scoring 20 tries in just 13 games this season — whilst five eighth Te Maire Martin has recorded 26 try-assists, the second highest in the competition. Jazz Tevaga also looms as a danger man in the middle of the field for the Warriors, having made a whopping 731 tackles this year.

A victory would ensure Brett Kimmorley's side finish the year inside the top eight, and keep their slim top-four hopes alive in the process, while the Warriors need a victory to keep their hopes at finals football alive. Depending on results, these two teams could well find themselves squaring off in an elimination final next fortnight, adding some extra intrigue to the match.
