Always excited on game day

Can anyone confirm kick off please says 5.30pm here and 7.30pm on Warriors app
Looking forward to this game after being tamed by Melbourne.

The team looks good on paper but I count 7 that have been injured this season so we've possibly got to consider the toll those injuries take even only 9 rounds in.

None the less I expect us to win. Whether by a lot or by 1.

My picks today;

Hiku and Fusitua to score one each.
Penalties to be kicked often.
Shaun Johnson to get one.
Lisone to resurrect his round 1 try.
Harris to get one.
Kata to bomb two tries but get 1.
Was a bit depressing last weekend, felt like we had a bye..NRL weekends just aint the same when the Warriors aren’t playing.
Hopefully the 10 day break will have the boys fresh.
Expecting a cracker of a game, all those Tiger Kiwis will be psyched for a big one back on home land.
Yeah boyee, can’t wait!
How good is game day this year! So good to know your side will turn up.

Another tough game, Earn Masters looms as a big threat, need to nullify his space from his inside, easier said than done.

Wests fans will be equally afraid of our right side? would love to see Johnson, Harris, Hiku and Fusitua explode today. Supercoach bias here!

Bunty to lead from the front again, I love watching him play. Our best forward along with Isaac for me this year.

How is the weather shaping up in Auckland?

Warriors by unders.
