Round 20 of the premiership is set to take place next weekend. Matt Pritchard looks at the key matches for eight teams fighting out for the final places in this year’s NRL finals series.
Round 21 – New Zealand Warriors vs Manly Sea Eagles, Mount Smart Stadium
Warriors run home: Raiders (H), Sea Eagles (H), Roosters (A), Sharks (A), Rabbitohs (H), Raiders (A)
New Zealand Warrior’s record against Manly Sea Eagles is poor having only won nine of their thirty-four clashes. This will be a must-win game, especially if they are unable to overcome the Raiders at Mount Smart Stadium this coming weekend. The road just looks too tough with the Roosters and Rabbitohs also in the run home.
