The Broncos will host the Wests Tigers in game five, round five National Rugby League Telstra Premiership in 2023; It doesn’t get more competitive in round five as these two fight it out for another two points; the Sharks are to take on a very a different Warriors team in 2023, the Warriors incurring only one loss so far this season to the Roosters, and in there last away game against the Cowboys the Warriors were masterful keeping the Cowboys tamed in scoring points, the Sharks always play great against the Warriors, with a great head to head record, but will history be enough to beat the new and improved New Zealand Warriors?
Since 1998, the Sharks have loved beating the Warriors, winning sixty-one per cent of their head-to-head clashes, and out of the last five home games the Sharkies have played the Warriors, it’s the Sharks who have won five out of five! The last time these two teams clashed, the Sharks were victorious, winning 38-16.
In Round four, the Sharks beat the Dragons 40-8, and the Warriors beat the Bulldogs 16-14.
The Sharks have averaged twenty-seven points a match, and the Warriors have averaged nineteen points.
On average, the Sharks have been leaking twenty-one points a match in 2023, while the Warriors, on average, have been leaking fifteen points a match.
