Roosters: In: Lindsay Collins / Out: Egan Butcher

What We Like

Joseph Manu will be looking to continue his try-scoring streak against the Bulldogs and extend it to seven games in a row that he has scored against the blue and white Bulldogs.

Anytime Tryscorer Joseph Manu $2.50

Final Thought

The Roosters fullback has started the season in incredible form – and despite losing to the Panthers last week – and has managed to score a try in his last six outings against the Bulldogs, either home or away.

Team News

Knights: In: Jackson Hastings, Leo Thompson, Dane Gagai / Out: Tyson Gamble, Dylan Lucas, Brodie Jones

Dragons: In: Michael Molo / Out: Hame Sele

What We Like

After defeating the Sea Eagles last week, the Dragons will be looking to pull off another upset and take down the Knights away from home. Not impossible, the Knights have struggled in attack, continually swaping their halves playmakers.

Match Result St George Illawarra Dragons $2.88

Final Thought

A weapon on the field, the 2023 Dally M Medal winner Kalyn Ponga is a big piece in the club’s success on the field. He will be looking to get the ball rolling on Friday evening and take home the first try.

First Tryscorer Kalyn Ponga $10.00

Warriors: In: Te Maire Martin, Charne Nicoll-Klokstad, Tom Ale, Freddy Lussick / Out: Kurt Capewell, Adam Pompey, Chanel Harris-Tavita, Luke Metcalf

What We Like

It is surprising to consider that the Rabbitohs are outsiders for the clash on Saturday afternoon. The Bunnies registered their first win of the season last week and will be aiming to continue winning while the Warriors always struggle away from their home venue.

Match Result South Sydney Rabbitohs $2.08

Final Thought

If the Rabbitohs are to win on Saturday, they will need to be good in both halves of footy rather than just the second half. Jason Demetriou will be aiming for his team to get the game started quickly before finishing it in the last 40 minutes.

Half-Time/Full-Time Rabbitohs/Rabbitohs $3.00

Sea Eagles: No Changes Made

Warriors: In: James Fisher-Harris / Out: Mavrik Geyer

What We Like

The three-time consecutive NRL premiers have only lost one game this season and emerged victorious in their last eight matches against the Manly Sea Eagles.

Match Result Penrith Panthers $1.64

Final Thought

There is no better player in the centres at the moment than Izack Tago. A mixture of skill, power and brute force, Tago has had one of the best starts to the season and crosses the line with ease.

Anytime Tryscorer Izack Tago $2.60

Team News

Tigers: In: Latu Fainu, Alex Twal / Out: Lachlan Galvin, Asu Kepaoa

What We Like

After recording consecutive wins last week, the Wests Tigers have won more games than losses for the first time since 2020. They are in perfect form and will be looking to continue their ability to win matches under the Benji Marshall era.

Match Result Wests Tigers $2.44

Final Thought

When competing at night, The Dolphins’ total match points always fall under the line. Expect the same as both teams will work hard in defence with limited chances in attack.

Cowboys: No Changes Made

Titans: In: Jojo Fifita, Harley Smith-Shields, Josiah Pahulu / Out: Isaac Liu, Alofiana Khan-Pereira, Phil Sami

What We Like

The Titans have yet to register a win against Des Hasler, as they have struggled this season. The Cowboys have also won ten of their past 11 matches against their inner-state rivals.

Margin North Queensland Cowboys 13+ $1.56

Final Thought

Second-rower Jeremiah Nanai will be looking to continue his streak of scoring against teams on a losing streak – a feat he has down in each of his last seven appearances against teams that fit the description.

Anytime Tryscorer Jeremiah Nanai $2.50

Team News

Raiders: In: Ata Mariota / Out: Zac Hosking

Eels: In: Bailey Simonsson, Wiremu Grieg / Out: Morgan Harper, Brendan Hands

What We Like

While the Raiders have struggled recently, Xavier Savage has been in fine form, scoring a try in his last games against NRL teams from New South Wales.

Anytime Tryscorer Xavier Savage $2.12

Final Thought

The Raiders produced one of their worst defensive performances last weekend against the Sharks, giving up an 18-0 lead in the process. On the other hand, the Eels will be eager to bounce back from their lost against the Wests Tigers.
