Previously, in earlier years and most recent form, 39 matches played between the Roosters and the Warriors favour the Warriors winning 21, all other statistics indicate the Roosters score more points and defend a lot better on an average, one big statistic is that the Warriors this season have a win rate of 83% at this venue 5/6.
Sydney Roosters for the win.
