New Zealand Warriors vs South Sydney Rabbitohs Live & TV Coverage NRL 2018 Full HD
First takes on second and to kick off this delicious double header, the Warriors play host to a red-hot Rabbitohs side at Mt Smart stadium.
The cardinal and myrtle come into the contest off three straight victories highlighted by a dominant performance against competition leaders, St George Illawarra.
After an indifferent first month, they’ve found form that has rocketed them up to fourth position.
This has come off the back of an impressive forward pack, led by the Burgii and talented youngster Angus Crichton has allowed the backline to flourish and put Damien Cook in pole position to take the hooking rol for the Blues in Origin 1.
Conversely the Warriors have had a rollercoaster last month. From the rugged display against St George where they gave the then undefeated, Dragons no room to move to a pair of lows – being thrashed on ANZAC day by the Storm and held to the duck egg by the Roosters – has tempered some of the initial enthusiasm for them challenging this season.
The continued absence of Shaun Johnson hasn’t hurt them as much it would’ve in previous seasons.
Blake Green and Mason Lino have combined well in giving clean ball to a Fus-powered backline showing that the Warriors aren’t blighted by setbacks and if they can match itagainst a confident South Sydney side we’re set for a cracking contest.
