Contrasting fortunes greeted these two outfits last week - the Dragons surprised many with an emphatic win over the Tigers while the Warriors were patchy and poor against a rampaging Eels side. This week, both are greeted by extraordinary winds and lashing rain as Auckland suffers the effects of Cyclone Lusi.
