The Warriors face a must win scenario when they host the struggling Gold Coast Titans at Mt Smart Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
After falling out of the Top 8, the New Zealand side will be looking to rack up a score on their opponents here, and given recent history they may well do just that.
The warriors have won 4 of the past 6 games played in NZ against the Titans, including the last 3 straight.
They have won their last 7 clashes at all venues against Gold Coast, with the Queensland side’s last victory coming in 2010.
New Zealand were also successful 24-16 earlier this year, and with their season on the line here I believe they will be primed for a big performance.
