The Vodafone Warriors have a second straight clash on the road when they take on Canterbury Bankstown in Saturday’s 23rd-round Intrust Super Premiership encounter at Belmore Sports Ground (3.00pm kick-off local time; 5.00pm NZT).

With just three rounds left in the competition’s regular season, the Stacey Jones-coached side still sits inside the top four lying third ahead of Wests Tigers on points for and against.

They can’t afford a slip-up, though, with Newtown just one point back on 29 in fifth place.

The Vodafone Warriors are coming off a tight 16-20 loss to the Wyong Roos last week and also lost their previous two match against the Mounties.

The Vodafone Junior Warriors are also looking to rebound from defeat, cruelly undone by a late Gold Coast try last week.
