Stranded Warriors To Get No Sympathy

It is hard not to feel sorry for the Warriors. The coronavirus has impacted sport across the globe but in Rugby League terms, it has hit the Warriors most of all. Peta Hiku and Patrick Herbert have returned to New Zealand. The team has been stuck in Australia, forced to find accommodation on the Central Coast and then play a home game on the Gold Coast.

This is a bad situation for the Warriors, who are hardly known for their resilience. Against a Canberra team that can run up a score.

The Warriors stunned the Raiders 24-20 when the teams last met in Round 25 last year in Canberra. New Zealand have now won three of the last four meetings after being beaten by 12-plus in four straight. The Warriors have covered 9 of the last 14 meetings. It won’t be enough though, particularly after two contrasting Round 1 showings. The Raiders have scored at least 19 points in seven of eight meetings against the Warriors.

Canberra have covered 25 of 39 away from Canberra Stadium and have covered 14 of 23 off a double digit win. The Warriors have covered just two of eight getting a double digit start.

The Wolf is betting on this getting ugly … real ugly.

H2H: Raiders ($1.25)
Best Bet: Raiders -12 ($1.90)
Same Game Multi: Canberra 13+/Jack Wighton Try/Elliot Whitehead Try ($9.62)
