Warriors Vs Sharks
The first match of the double-header on Friday night sees the Warriors hosting the Sharks at Mt Smart Stadium. It’s a big one for the Sharks, who sit four points behind the fourth-placed Warriors but do have a bye up their sleeve and can effectively leapfrog them in the standings with a win on Friday night. The Sharks have won three straight and eight of their last 10 against the Warriors, holding them to 20 points or less in each of those meetings. They have wasted no time unveiling new recruit Aaron Woods, who’s been named to come off the bench, replacing the injured Jack Williams. Luke Lewis and Wade Graham are both injured meaning the visitors will have a new second row with Kurt Capewell and Scott Sorenson their replacements. The Denver Test means Peta Hiku, Issac Luke and Ken Maumalo will likely miss after being named as reserves while Simon Mannering replaces the suspended Adam Blair at lock. Some insights for the game are:
• The Warriors have won seven of their last nine night matches.
• Ricky Leutele has scored a try in two of his last three appearances against the Warriors. • New Zealand has scored 11 to 20 points in each of its last five matches against Cronulla.
