NRL Betting: Jekyll and Hyde sides to square off
The Warriors, however, have won three of their last four matches....
David Murdoch has found plenty at stake in Friday Night's NRL clash between the 8th-placed Warriors and the 9th-placed Tigers.
Both sides are locked on 10 competition points and looking to cement themselves in the eight after poor starts to the season.
The Tigers are coming off a bye and three straight wins, but two of those were by a solitary point. Their attacking stats make for shocking reading. They rank last in the competition for line breaks, last for tackle busts and last for tackles in the opposition 20; and these stats are boosted by a 30-0 walloping of the Panthers.
The Warriors, on the other hand, are all about attack, averaging the third most tries per game in the competition behind the Storm and the Cowboys. And yet it's defensively where the Warriors have problems; they miss the most tackles per game (34) in the competition. But this may not be such a problem against a team that struggles to bust tackles and break the line.
What may decide this one is who can come up with the most completed sets.
Both teams are completing just 68% of their sets in 2012, although over the past four matches they've lifted that number into the low 70's. Expect that to be the most talked about stat at game's end.
Given how Jekyll and Hyde these sides tend to be, it's hard to know which one will turn up to play.
While the Tigers have an impressive record at Leichardt oval, they will be missing Robbie Farah. Expect the Warriors to aim their colossal forward pack straight at Benji Marshall.
* Wests have won nine of their last 10 matches at Leichhardt Oval
* New Zealand have lost three of their last four matches at Leichhardt Oval
* Wests have lost seven of their last nine matches on the line
The Warriors, however, have won three of their last four matches and while one of those wins was against the Broncos, they're yet to prove their worth away from Mt Smart Stadium.
