The Knights will host the New Zealand Warriors in game seven, round six National Rugby League Telstra Premiership in 2023; It doesn’t get more competitive in round six as these two fight it out for another two points; The Knights are coming off a draw against Manly, but have been exceeding expectations overall, playing as a team the Knights will welcome the challenge at home against the Warriors. Still, as Shaun Johnson said, the Warriors this year is a different team, also, coming off three straight wins over good teams, it will be one competitive showdown, but the Warriors should be too much for them in the end.
Since 1998, the Warriors have been winning fifty-one per cent of the head-to-head clashes; the Knights at home have won three from five against the Warriors; the last time these two met? The Knights were victorious, winning 10-6.
In Round Five, the Knights drew with the Sea Eagles 32-32, and the Warriors beat the Sharks 32-30.
The Knights have averaged twenty points a match, and the Warriors have averaged twenty-one.
On average, the Knights have been leaking twenty-three points a match in 2023, while the Warriors, on average, have been leaking eighteen points a match.
