NRL Previews - Sea Eagles v Warriors (Round 6)

16-04-2011 05:30PM at Brookvale Oval

Referees: Tony Archer and Brett Suttor
Touch Judges: Russell Turner and Jason Walsh
Video Referee: Chris Ward

Any of you who saw the Sea Eagles pull one out in the dying moments of their match against the Sharks last weekend may never doubt them again. Me personally, I will never forgive them as that ridiculous turn of events cost me a multi. Ridiculous for some but for Des Halser, a sign that his group are capable of miracles and with this confidence, they face the visiting New Zealand Warriors on Saturday afternoon at Brookvale Oval.

A huge win for Ivan Cleary's men last week but this is a long road trip and although they have had success in the past, New Zealand will find the task too difficult to overcome. The Eagles discipline and defence holds the Warriors at bay but only just. Don't miss the enthralling matchup in the centres as four old hard heads prepare to knock the stuffing out of each other. Jamie Lyon and his men hold on in a tight one.

My Tip: Sea Eagles 19-18
