In the last six rounds they play against the first finalists South Sydney – twice (rounds 20 and 25) – and Canberra (round 21) as well as against the small premieres Penrith and a team of Roosters who are eager to regain their championship title.

The Warriors will start their campaign against the Titans at Mt Smart Stadium, where they won nine of twelve home fights between the two teams, followed by another home game where the Knights take place six days later. The Raiders and Roosters (both gone) are having a tough first month.
The five-week block of the Warriors after their departure in Round 13 is just as critical as in home fights against Storm (Round 14), Dragons (Round 16) and Panthers (Round 18) and away trips to Newcastle (Round 15) and Cronulla (Round 17).
The heat is turned up on the tigers from the start. They pulled 2020 heavyweights Canberra (away) and Sydney Roosters (at home) in the first two weeks leading up to matches against fellow finalists Newcastle (away) and Parramatta (home) to wrap up a difficult first month.
