New Zealand Warriors versus Newcastle Knights Round 1, Friday 3rd of March! 6:00pm kick-off.


The New Zealand Warriors will host the Newcastle Knights in game two, round one National Rugby League Telstra Premiership in 2023;
it really doesn’t become more competitive in round one as these two fight it out for the two points, with the New Zealand Warriors just having a
slight edge on Newcastle, This clash sets out to be a stress reliever for both clubs and fans if either can manage the win; flip a coin cause this could go either way!


Since 1998, the Warriors have played the Newcastle Knights in forty-four games but have only been successful fifty per cent of the head-to-head clashes; out of the last five Warriors home game head-to-head clashes, the Knights have won the last three out of five, the last time these two teams clashed the Newcastle Knights won 24-16.


The New Zealand Warriors finished twelfth, and the Newcastle Knights finished seventeenth; the Warriors were stronger in attack, almost doubling the Knights for points. They were much better in defence, halving Newcastle’s leaked amount of points.


The Warriors were marginally stronger in attack scoring 408 total points in the Telstra Premiership round 25, 2022, while Newcastle scored a total of 372.


The Knights had better defence conceding a total of 662 points against, while the Warriors conceded a total of 700.

The Conclusion

The Knights need to step up and make a statement; they have no room for excuses this year, and to win round one will relieve some early pressure, so we are taking the Knights and backing their slightly better defence.
