New Zealand will be buoyed by the return of halfback Shaun Johnson for their clash with the Newcastle Knights on Sunday afternoon.
The Warriors have a solid recent record at this ground, having won 5 of the last 7 matches played here.
The New Zealand side were victorious 38-18 at Mt Smart Stadium earlier this year, and since 2006 have lost just 3 of the 15 matches played against the Knights.
High Scoring encounters have also been a feature, with just 1 of the past 11 clashes at this ground failing to surpass 40pts.
Providing the weather is kind to us, I can see another free flowing game with plenty of points on offer.
