The New Zealand Warriors host the Manly Sea Eagles at Sunshine Coast Stadium on Sunday. Both sides have missed the finals this season, but who will finish their campaign in strong fashion with a final day win.

New Zealand Warriors Form


The New Zealand Warriors have often been criticised for an inability to grind out a win, but in a season like never before they have been extremely brave in each game in 2020 having been on the road all season.

After losing star fullback and captain Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, the Warriors went down 26-14 to the Canberra Raiders last week.

New Zealand Warriors vs Manly Sea Eagles Match Up


Jamayne Taunua-Brown has enjoyed a breakout season this year for the Warriors and will be looking to finish the season in strong fashion. He comes up against a fired-up Martin Tapau. 

Set to lose his front-row partner Addin Fonua-Blake to the Warriors next season, Tapau will be looking to stamp his authority against New Zealand on Sunday. 

Although Taunua-Brown will be coming off the bench, the race sets up as a clash between the Kiwi star and an up-and-coming youngster in a monumental front-row clash.
