The New Zealand Warriors are headed to Allianz Stadium to win. That’s the message from Warriors captain Roger Tuivasa-Sheck who will come up against his former team the Sydney Roosters and fellow fullback threat James Tedesco.
There are several mouth-watering match-ups on Saturday including RTS and Tedesco and Shaun Johnson against Cooper Cronk.
“I’m excited to go over there and play at Allianz. It’s a special thing to play my former teammates,” Tuivasa-Sheck said.
“I grew some great bonds with the Roosters, the club and the players, so I’m looking forward to seeing them, but firstly hope to get the two points.
“They’re a top four team so they’re the type of team that we are aiming to play against and be on their level.
“We believe in what we’ve got so we’re looking forward to going over there and seeing what we’ve got against them.”
RTS also praised Tedesco who has found his feet since moving across from Campbelltown.

“I’m a massive fan of the way he moves and his footwork, agility and positioning, so I’m looking forward to going up against him.”
