Burgess expecting big forwards battle

Luke Burgess believes the Sea Eagles can expect a tough task when they face the New Zealand Warriors at nib Stadium this Saturday.

"The Warriors are always a tough side, you can expect a big game through the middle, they are known for having big blokes, it's definitely going to be a good forwards battle," Burgess said.

"Perth's a long trip, everyone's looking forward to playing some football this week. It's a good trip to get away as a squad and we will get over there early to make sure our preparations are good for Saturday."
