The Warriors will play the Bulldogs at Eden Park in round six of next year's NRL.

The club confirmed that fixture in a brief tease of the full season draw that will be revealed this afternoon.

The Warriors are set to play three games at Eden Park next year with the Bulldogs one of them on Sunday, April 13 with a 4pm kickoff.

The Warriors played the Bulldogs at the Cake Tin in Wellington last year.

The club is keen to spread their game away from their traditional home at Mt Smart Stadium.

Eden Park, the traditional home of Auckland rugby, hasn't been a happy hunting ground for league teams.

The Warriors have played three games there in recent years losing to Parramatta in 2011, Manly the following year and the Sydney Roosters this year.

The Warriors also confirmed today that one of their 2014 preseason trial matches will be against the Gold Coast Titans at North Harbour Stadium on Sunday, February 9.
