Welcome to Saturday afternoon football as the New Zealand Warriors host the Wests Tigers from Westpac Stadium in Wellington.

The Tigers have had a good patch of form in the last fortnight. After a big loss in round one at the hands of the Dragons they have bounced back with two very impressive wins over the Titans and the Rabbitohs. The Warriors got off the mark last week after holding on to defeat the Cowboys in Townsville but know another win is needed today to get some early season consistency.

All eyes will be on the exciting young halfbacks for both sides as they attempt to get their teams over the line for a win today.
