The Warriors and the Cowboys both coming off last Round loses, Warriors couldn’t score any points against the Panthers and leaked 26 unanswered points, the Cowboys lost to a relentless Cronulla Sharks outfit who got their first win of the season, this game is significant for both teams, the Cowboys may possibly have Jason Taumalolo and Coen Hess back two powerhouses and if that’s the case it will be a very tough match for the Warriors.

Last time they met

The last time these two teams met New Zealand Warriors at home were beaten 10-17. Previously, in earlier years and most recent form, matches between Warriors and the Cowboys have been split close to even, points scored is the major difference between the two, the Cowboys have scored 73 points more this season, on the flipside the Warriors have leaked fewer points this season and a Warriors upset could be on the cards as the statistics state the Warriors have never lost from this venue winning 3/3.
