Sydney Roosters Women – NZ Warriors Women Match Prediction | 14-09-2019 01:05

It may only be Round 4, but we already look to have our first blockbuster of Season 2018. For the Roosters, what began as a shaky start toseason 2018, has corrected itself with two comprehensive wins in recent weeks. After a dominant 38-8 shutout of the Knights last Sunday, the critics are temporarily at bay but that doesnt mean the pressure lets up.

The entire match last week prior to the sin-binning of Adam Blair was one of the best Warriors performances Ive seen this year. And who can forget Anzac Day when they came within 1 point of the Storm without Roger Tuivasa-Sheck! Weve seen at various points this year the Warriors bring their A-game, and they are no doubt an impressive side when that happens.

Lindsay Collins and Lachlan Lam were omitted an hour before kick-off. The other player to drop out on Saturday was Billy Smith. Roosters: Boyd Cordner's return has been delayed for at least another week after he was cut from the reserves on Saturday. Isaac Liu was named as the starting prop on Tuesday, but he switched with Zane Tetevano before last week's clash with the Raiders and Trent Robinson might go with the same ploy on Sunday.

She played the full 60 minutes making 113 metres from 13 runs, four tackle breaks and 15 tackles. Her form saw her secure a starting spot for the club's opening match against the Sydney Roosters. Onjeurlina followed it up with another 60-minute effort against the Dragons when she made 99 metres from 12 runs, four tackle breaks and 21 tackles. Also able to play in the centres, she works as a warehouse assistant for Tupperware. The former Papatoetoe High School pupil is also an accomplished rugby union player. 'Onj' or 'Onjie', a back rower out of the Otahuhu Leopards, is another player from the Counties Manukau Stingrays side which won the women's nationals this year. Pronunciation: Pronunciation: On-jar-lee-nah Lay-a-toe-ah. While yet to make the Kiwi Ferns, the 22-year-old impressed this year to claim a contract with the Warriors for the inaugural NRL women's premiership. Her effort was critical in the 10-4 win.

Selected Teams

This week they face an even tougher challenge against a Warriors pack that not only possesses size but also ball playing ability. The Warriors 4,874 run metres this season is second only to South Sydney and so much of that go-forward has come off the back of new recruits Adam Blair and Tohu Harris. Last week against the Knights, enforcers Dylan Napa and Jared Waerea-Hargreaves only ran for 82 and 80 metres, respectively. The big question mark for the Roosters remains their forward pack.

It will be interesting to see if they get carried away with themselves after last week. Last week they played to a level where you go, Wow, theyre good and they can make the eight. For the Warriors, it is their season on the line. The Roosters will challenge you in the middle and run and play at a high pace. They need to get some consistent game time into Jared Waerea-Hargreaves heading into the finals. But the key for them is consistency.

Prior to this weeks game, the Warriors have travelled to Perth and Canberra in what has been a tough initiation to Season 2018. Another trip back across the ditch must surely take its toll and gives the Roosters a slight edge in this one. If there is one black mark against the Warriors, its the number of frequent flyer points they have already amassed in 2018.

The visitors also secured an important win but an in-form Roosters team could deal them a big blow in their bid to make the top 8. Sydney Roosters were too good for Canberra last week and will be confident of making it five wins in a row as they host New Zealand Warriors. The Roosters have looked impressive recently and as they build for the play-offs, they should be capable of another victory here.

Allianz Stadium, Saturday 31st March, 5:30 pm AEDT.

Two teams in fantastic recent form and two teams with pressure and expectations already mounting. This game looks to be the match of the round and will be tough to pick based on form alone.

This is the first time in their 23 year history that the Warriors have opened the season with three consecutive wins and theyll be looking to achieve a historic fourth when they face a resurgent Sydney Roosters on Saturday. So good in fact, they find themselves as one of only two sides still unbeaten after three rounds. The Warriors were a side most had tipped to languish at the bottom of the table in 2018, so Kearney has done a remarkable job to get them firing so early in the season.
