New Zealand Warriors NRL

The New Zealand Warriors became everybody’s second-favourite NRL team in 2020 and weren’t far off reaching the finals despite spending a majority of the season outside of their home country.

The club made some tough calls over the course of the campaign, including the decision to axe Stephen Kearney and appoint Nathan Brown as head coach for 2021.

NZ Warriors players to watch in 2021

NRL bettingKodi Nikorima
Born: 3/4/1994
Games: 120
Tries: 29
Position: Five-eighth

Since the departure of Blake Green midway through 2020, the versatile Kodi Nikorima has emerged as a classy operator in the halves. His partnership with Chanel Harris-Tavita will be central to the Warriors’ fortunes this year.

NRL bettingAddin Fonua-Blake
Born: 6/11/1995
Games: 98
Tries: 13
Position: Prop

This might prove to be the signing of the year. Addin Fonua-Blake was a huge presence in Manly’s forward pack, and his partnership with star lock Tohu Harris could help shape the Warriors for years to come.

NRL star Roger Tuivasa-SheckRoger Tuivasa-Sheck
Born: 5/6/1993
Games: 179
Tries: 54
Position: Fullback

Few players in the NRL are as important to their team as Roger Tuivasa-Sheck is to the Warriors. Can the 2019 Dally M Medal winner drag this side to the finals one last time before he leaves for rugby union next year?
