A Warriors side not affected but the State of Origin period head back to Mt Smart Stadium to take a Knights side battling off field dramas as well as on field form.
With no players taking part in State of Origin one the Warriors have a full strength side coming into this match and without further injury, could continue to field a solid squad over the coming month.
The Warriors face a Knights side that have struggled to find form in 2014 and are in desperate need of a win if there they are any chance of turning their horror season around.
Impressive origin performances by Beau Scott and Darius Boyd will give Knights fans some hope , however whether they will both back up for the Knights on Sunday is still unknown.
The Warriors will come into this match as favourites and rightly so. With the unpredictably of Shaun Johnson and the speed of their back line I expect the Warriors to win and win comfortably.
