Raiders forward Luke Bateman says that the green machine will not underestimate the Warriors this weekend in New Zealand.

The Warriors are on a five game losing streak but the former Miles Devils junior admits that the Raiders will be bracing themselves for a fired up New Zealand outfit.

"They will be really prepared for a massive game this weekend and it's going to be a tough match," Bateman said.

"They have a big side and when you have big blokes fired up running at you it's always going to be a tough occasion."
